VICTOR, Ida. — Christmas gets an extra dash of ‘merry’ thanks to a December 7 Holiday Festival and Light Parade at Victor, Idaho.
The town to the nor-west of Teton Pass is ready to roll out an annual event line-up that, in 2019, encompasses bargain shopping, games, giveaways, crafts, carols, fireworks, live entertainment and, of course, a visit from Santa Clause himself.
“If anything encapsulate the Christmas spirit it’s Holiday Festival,” said City Administrator at Victor, Olivia Goodale. “It’s a warm feeling of good old fashion fun to ring in the holidays.”
The Saturday festivities spark to life with a day-long “Friends of the Library Book Sale” beginning at 10 a.m. Music on the street and live entertainment can be expected from Noon–5 p.m. before Santa arrives to the library to lead a kid’s craft workshop while hearing wishlists from kiddo’s big ‘n tall. This is the library’s first occasion hosting Santa, and the very special visit is expected to “take celebrations to the next level.”
For the interested sportsman, “Turkey Bowling” takes to the skies at 2:30 p.m. and special Saturday night public skating opens 7 p.m. at Kotler Ice Rink. In-between hours will be happily occupied by “Free Baked Potato Giveaway” at The Knotty Pine, and a performance of “Christmas Carol” at Pierre’s Play House.
Then, as exclamation point to Holiday Festival 2019, crowds are invited to Main Street for the Holiday Light Parade and Fireworks scheduled for 6 p.m. The parade, which features homemade floats, is open to all participants, and prizes will be awarded to the Top-3 entries. Interested parties are invited to join in by contacting City Hall.
