Although weather was a challenge and forced the cancellation of the first Reindeer Run 5K and Children’s Jingle Bell Fun Run, all other events went off without a hitch and everyone seemed to enjoy the festivities -- including Santa!! Thank you to all of our patrons, vendors, guests, and volunteers for a great day. Thank you also to everyone who donated toys to the Wilson County Sheriff Santa Program.
