The Community Playhouse will be the site of a Christmas Kids Fest from 4:30-7 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 6.

There will be kids games and visits with Santa inside. A horse-drawn carriage will give rides and s’mores will be roasted on the street.

Organizers say there will be plenty of things to see and do for the family, including a children’s coloring contest with prizes

This mini-festival will take place at the Neville Center, Downtown at the corner of 5th and Dewey Streets.

The grand prize winner of the coloring contest will win a pizza party and ride with Santa in the downtown Christmas parade. Also, the class at the school the winner attends will receive $200.
