With warmer temperatures these past few days you may need something to get back into the holiday spirit as chilly temperatures roll into Michiana. The 2nd Annual 10-Day Winterfest is set to kick off in Elkhart this Friday and it’s a great way to spend time with family.
Thanks to Santa’s Pantry-Pay It Forward, Inc. there will be all sorts of activities throughout the 10-day stretch. Some include the popular “Where’s Santa?” event. It’s where folks will join Mrs. Clause as they help her find Santa by following clues given to them by Santa’s elves along the route downtown.
Other events include a breakfast with Santa, a Christmas tree lighting, ice skating, a town parade and much more. For a list of all of the events just go to the Santa’s Pantry website .
Also, many of these events are free, others will cost you a few bucks. The director of Santa’s Pantry-Pay It Forward says even if they do cost a few bucks they made it so the prices are very reasonable.
For those who may not know, Santa’s Pantry is a nonprofit organization that promotes paying it forward with acts of kindness. They work with kids and teach them about giving back. The organization also raises money for other local nonprofits.
