After everybody’s had their fill of local foods and leftovers from Thanksgiving dinner, you might be looking for fun family events. Many of you might be headed out for some shopping first thing, but after the crazy deals and your mid-morning nap, there’s time for Christmas tree hunting! This weekend, the kids in the family will have the opportunity to meet Santa at a local Christmas tree farm and hand over their wish list. Take your family to a local farm this weekend to pick out the perfect Christmas tree and spread the holiday joy.
On Friday, Nov 24th, Santa will be at Peterson Christmas Tree Farm in Clear Lake from 1 p.m. until 3 p.m., and at Turck’s Trees in Litchfield from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., where you can also meet two live reindeer, Candy Cane and Sparkle! Saturday, Nov 25th is one month before Christmas, so meet Santa at Turck’s Trees (11 a.m. – 3 p.m.), Peterson Christmas Tree Farm (1 p.m. – 3 p.m.), or Enzenauer Evergreens in Wanamingo from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. At Cornerstone Pines in Grey Eagle, Santa will be accompanied by Elves with kid-friendly activities from 12:30 until 4:30 p.m.!
