XENIA — Preparations are underway for Greene County Parks and Trails’ Annual Santa’s Holiday in the Park.

The event will be held 6-9 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 6, to Saturday, Dec. 9 at James Ranch Park, 177 Fairground Road.

Guests can visit with Mr. and Mrs. Claus within an 1800s brick farm home, take their own photos or purchase one, enjoy a self-guided walking tour of the lighted grounds, create hands-on interactive crafts, visit with strolling holiday characters, write and mail letters to Santa, pick out holiday tattoos and enjoy old-fashioned candy, kettle corn and hot chocolate for a small fee.

Thousands of lights will illuminate the park as well as numerous holiday blow-up characters. Live reindeer will be on the grounds on Friday, Dec. 8.

A $1 suggested donation per person is suggested. All funds raised go back into the event for future years.

Sponsors of the event include betterImages and Greene Memorial Hospital.

For more information, call GCP&T at 937-562-6440 or email info@gcparkstrails.com.
