Santa and Mrs. Clause arrived in Manson aboard Dale England's helicopter at noon, Saturday - November 26, right on schedule. This kicks off the 2016 "Village of Lights" for Manson and it will run to the end of Winterfest on January 22, 2017.
This is a wonderful tradition in Manson says Judy Dai, Manson Chamber of Commerce president on the right with her husband Jim Dai on the left.
Judy Dai, Manson Chamber of Commerce president loves the wonder of it all. The smiles one the faces of the children make all her efforts worthwhile. MCC Board member Jeff Conwell say this is a most fun and unique Christmas event that Manson should be proud of.
Santa was greeted by kids of all ages that wanted to give him their Christmas wish list. Mr. and Mrs. Clause led the children to Allison's of Manson were each had an opportunity to sit in his lap and have a one on one discussion about their Christmas gift. The next stop for Santa was the Manson Business Center where children enjoy treats and a chance to sit on Santa's lap.
Allison's of Manson was decorated beautifully and if you are looking to get in the Christmas spirit stop by and say hello to Lance and Sally.
A BIG line of children wait to have their photo taken with Santa.
Still one of the hidden treasures in Manson is the Underground at Allison's of Manson. A great place to watch the Seahawks or play one of the many games located at the Underground.
While that was taking place the Manson Grange will filled with shoppers looking at all the wonderful items available for sale from local community members at the Holiday Bizarre.
Manson is in full swing of Fall Barrel Tasting at most of the local wineries and tasting rooms. There is something very special about having a taste right out of the barrel!
Village of Lights continues on Saturday, December 3
, where kids are invited to Lake Chelan Building Supply
for a Christmas Building Project from 8 AM-12 PM. This gives kids the chance to actually build a gift for Christmas.
