Yikes! Christmas is only a few weeks away. Get into the holiday spirit with the Lighting of the Bridge from 4-8 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 18. Giant lighted ornaments will decorate Sundheim Park as young and old visit, and enjoy a cup of hot chocolate or coffee and a hot dog for a free will offering. Kids are encouraged to have their wish lists ready for Santa Claus.
New this year! Train rides, weather permitting. Kids from 2-92 can hop on the train and take a trip around the park. After all, it is the park with a beautiful historic railroad bridge as its backdrop!
The spectacular fireworks display will happen at 6 p.m., an hour earlier than previous years. Everyone is asked to please stay off the bridge during this entire event.
Earlier in the day, get a great start on your Christmas shopping and decorating at the Silver Bells Craft show from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. at the Fairview School.
