The Christmas season is upon us! Swing on by to drop off your  LETTER TO SANTA  in our North Pole Mailbox on Sunday, December 10, from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the Lindale Community Center.

Still haven’t put your wishes to paper, yet? No worries, we will have a Wish List Writing Station set up for you to do so. 

Come and meet the Grinch, the adorable green guy with a big belly! You can get up close and personal with him and even take a selfie. It's amazing how he went from being grumpy and cynical to being happy and full of Christmas cheer once he understood the true meaning of the holiday. Lots of people can relate to his story, which is why they absolutely love him!

Stay a while to enjoy the games, face painting, arts & crafts, Reindeer Food, snacks, and prizes, at our temporary “Whoville” for a wonderful merry afternoon with family and friends.   

FREE admission for all!
