Planning has begun for the annual Christmas on Market celebration Nov. 24. We encourage you to mark the date on your calendar and plan to shop local that weekend as many of our hometown businesses will be offering great opportunities for holiday gifts. The theme this year is: Christmas on Market 2018: “Country Christmas”.
In addition to shopping, activities will be held throughout the day including breakfast, lunch, visits with Santa, jingle bell run 5K, in store activities, chili cook-off, chili feed, gingerbread house building, craft show, raffle drawing, Kansas City Chief’s Wolf mascot, Topeka Pilots ice hockey mascot, Topeka Drum Corp, free photo booth, free poker run, bake sale, emergency services showcase, fire truck rides, ping pong throw, story time, bingo and the traditional lighted Christmas parade.
Event details will be announced as they are confirmed in the coming weeks. If you are interested in helping with the planning of this annual Chamber event, contact Jeanette Swarts at 785/249-5451. The next planning meeting will be October 3, 5:30 p.m. at Harmon Dental office.
