SEMINOLE – The weather may be balmy but children will have an opportunity to chill for a while when the city of Seminole’s 12th annual Winterfest Holiday Festival and Tree Lighting takes place Friday, Dec. 14, at the Seminole Recreation Center.
The event begins at 5:30 p.m. and continues to 9 p.m. Admission is free.
The featured entertainment is 20 tons of manufactured snow that will give kids the chance to slide down three runs on “snow mountain.” All sledding gear is provided by the city.
The city’s annual tree lighting will take place at 6:15 p.m., which will coincide with a musical program by the Seminole High School chorus and a dance performance by the Star Struck Dance Studio.
Santa Claus will make an appearance at 7 p.m. Parents are advised to bring their cameras.
Other amenities include the sale of air brush tattoos, which will serve as a fundraiser for the Recreation Center’s teen board, and food for purchase by Seminole Professional Firefighters Local 2896.
