Lots of fun to be had and memories to be made

To the Editor:
Last year’s WinterFest was a magical day, a picture right out of Norman Rockwell’s portfolio. The light snow, the just-cold-enough temperature, and residents of the village enjoying it all. 

We’re hoping for a repeat of an equally wonderful day this year on Sunday, Dec. 10, when Altamont Community Tradition presents this annual village festival. The event is from noon to 4 p.m. at various locations throughout the village, including Orsini Park, the Masonic Hall, St. John’s Lutheran Church, Altamont Reformed Church, and the library.

Many of our local businesses will be participating in the festivities as well, with special hours for the day. 

As you may have read in last week’s Enterprise, it all starts off at noon with the ever-popular Pet Pawrade beginning at Orsini Park. Santa will be in the park where we will have carriage rides, fire pits, and Kettle Korn.

The Living Nativity will be staged at Altamont Reformed Church, while the library will feature gingerbread houses; the Masonic Hall will have the Festival of Trees and Wreath Auction and St. John’s will have crafts for kids and a bake sale. 

There will lots of fun to be had and memories to be made. We invite the community to join in. Come on out.
