The Town of Halifax will present the 22nd edition of Holidays in Halifax on Saturday, Dec. 10, from 3:45 to 8 p.m.
Activities will begin at 3:45 in the Halifax Elementary School Gym. Other buildings will open later in the afternoon, and the event will close at 8 p.m.
While there won’t be fireworks at the end of the evening, other activities have been planned.
The Holmes Public Library will open at 5 p.m. to serve cider and cookies baked by the Silver Lake Regional Culinary Arts Dept.
The Halifax Fire Department will host its annual Chili Contest. All are invited to bring in a crock of their favorite chili recipe by 5 p.m. Chili aficionados attending the Holidays in Halifax festivities should stop by, taste the selection, and vote for their favorite. In addition to bragging rights, a prize will be awarded to the maker of the chili collecting the most votes.
The Halifax Town Hall will have the upstairs Great Hall decked out with holiday cheer, a train meandering through a winter village, cookies, goodies, cakes, and snacks, will be served from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. to all who stop by. Outside, ice sculptors will be hoping that the weather isn’t too mild so their artwork won’t melt.
The Holidays in Halifax committee is looking for volunteers to help out during the celebration. They need face painters, helpers for coloring and making ornaments. This is a perfect opportunity for high school students looking for community service hours. Please email Theresa.Levenson@Halifaxfireworks.org if you can help.
