Saturday, March 18, 2017

2016 Winter Wonderland
Saturday, December 3th, 2016

Kids of all ages descended on the Baxley Green for Winter Wonderland 2016, sponsored by the City of Baxley. From horse drawn carriage rides to roasting marshmallows around an open fire this event is the epitome of a heartfelt small town Christmas. Baxley's children kept Santa busy going over their wishlists and taking pictures. We hope he gets back to the North Pole in time to make his list and check it twice. We rarely get snow days in South Georgia, but for one special night, it magically appeared on the new snow slide and in the snow pit, where children made snowmen and dodged snowballs. This year's crafts included making jingle bell necklaces and reindeer food as well as color scratch ornaments, face painting and decorating homemade gingerbread cookies. We have something for everyone at this small town Christmas and we hope to see you there next year.
