The city of Colbert will have an “Old Fashioned Christmas in Colbert” Friday, Dec. 6, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Christmas music will begin at the pavilion with the Colbert Elementary School Choir under the direction of Paula Drake.
There will be a cakewalk, facepainting, marshmallow roast, hayride, and other activities. Santa and Mrs. Claus will be available to talk with the children at the old log house. Hotdogs, hot chocolate, drinks, popcorn balls and other goodies will be available. All activities are free. Door prizes will be given away at the end of the evening. Participants must be present to win a door prize.
Officials ask participants to bring an unwrapped toy and non-perishable food item for the Madison County Food Bank to be distributed to those less fortunate this Christmas season.
“You are invited to come and enjoy an old-fashioned Christmas in the City of Colbert,” leaders said.
