A Sun Valley Winter Wonderland

There was no question that Christmas is near as Sun Valley officially kicked off the season with a visit from Santa at the popular Winter Wonderland Festival


'Twas 12 days before Christmas and all through the mall,
People were smiling, the big and the small.
For the Winter Wonderland Festival was underway,
Bringing holiday cheer on a Sun Valley day.


The choir was singing carols of good cheer,
There was no question at all that Christmas is near.
A tiny train gave tiny children a ride,
Their laughter was loud and their smiles were wide.


Inside hot chocolate and treats awaited,
To warm everyone up and help them feel sated.
Cookies were ready to decorate, too,
With gumdrops, and peppermints - so much to do!


A scavenger hunt that went store to store,
Offered a tasty prize and much, much more.
And, of course, Santa made the trip to Sun Valley,
To help the children make their lists - don't dally!


All the shop windows are decked and great fun,
With beautiful gifts stocked for everyone.
Come and just gaze, or check off your list,
This is something you don't want to miss.


The Winter Wonderland Stroll runs right through the New Year,
So come to the Village for holiday cheer.
An old-fashioned Christmas lies right at your feet,
Creating lasting memories that just can't be beat.

The treats were sweet at Saturday's kick off to the holiday season. Cookie decorating, anyone?

Children's smiles and the twinkle in their eyes make the holidays bright
