Santa's Village celebrates 23rd year
It’s that time of year again and the Martin Parks and Rec Department is definitely in the spirit of the season. The 23rd annual Santa’s Village is gearing up for Dec. 6-9, at the Ned McWherter Agricultural Complex, on the campus of the University of Tennessee at Martin.
Bring the kids for all the fun and excitement of Santa’s Winter Wonderland, a petting farm, visit with Santa Claus, view the model train display, ride in a horse drawn wagon, and listen to live entertainment.
It’s absolutely free to the public but a five-dollar new toy or non-perishable canned good donation will be appreciated. Martin Parks and Rec, C.E. Weldon Public Library and the University of Tennessee at Martin sponsor the village.
All proceeds from Santa’s Village will go to help less fortunate families.
So make Dec. 6 through 9 a weekend to remember, not just for your family for others as well. For more information, call the department at 587-6784.
