10th Annual Carbon Valley Holiday Festival
- Saturday, December 5th
- Miners Park, 170 Grant Avenue, Firestone
- 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The Town of Firestone is excited to host our final event of the year – the Carbon Valley Holiday Festival! Much like the rest of the year, this event will look slightly different from in years past. We invite you to join us outside at Miners Park for crafts, complimentary hot cocoa, storytime, photos with Santa and more! To adhere to proper social distancing, the event will follow a one-way flow of traffic to each activity. Details on the specific activities are below:
Jingle Bell Walk
Much like a traditional "cakewalk," when families enter the event, they can participate in the Jingle Bell Walk to win fun prizes from local businesses when the music stops.
Get Involved! We are asking for a donation from Carbon Valley businesses for prizes for our Jingle Bell Walk. In resemblance of a cakewalk, these items will go to our lucky winners when the music stops. We'd love your creativity in this donation! Gift cards, gift certificates, gift baskets are all welcome as prizes for the activity. We also have your logo on display at the event to inform all attendees of your participation. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested in donating to the event.
Holiday crafts have always been the biggest part of the event. Each child will pick up to 5 crafts to take home and complete. While we will miss doing the crafts with everyone, we hope this will be a fun activity to do at home together as a family!
Photos with Santa
Santa will be available for photos, but he will have to keep his distance for pictures because he made the trip from the North Pole. Since the kids in attendance will not be able to sit on Santa's lap to share their holiday wishes, they will receive a 'Letter to Santa' sheet when they receive their bag of crafts at the start of the event. Participants can fill this out and leave it in Santa's sack once they take their pictures. Please note, you will be responsible for taking your pictures. There will not be a photographer in attendance this year.
There will be two Story Time sessions with Santa at 10:15 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. There will be 20 spots inside the tent for households to sit at and plenty of room outside of the tent to stand and listen to the story. All seating for storytime is first come, first served, with a line-up process on the tent's south side.
Hot Cocoa & Food Trucks
Complimentary Hot Cocoa provided by Redemption Road Coffee will be available to our first 500 attendees. Yolk'n Around and Tommy Boy Mini Donuts will both have breakfast food and drinks available for purchase.
