If you have kids, make plans now to attend Light Up Your Holiday! Downtown Kokomo will be bustling with holiday cheer on Saturday, December 1, 2012 from 4-7 pm with the arrival of Santa on the train, live reindeer, Christmas stories & crafts, letters to Santa, holiday treats, downtown lights & much more. Admission is free. Downtown art galleries and boutiques will also be open for holiday shopping. Kids of all ages will have a blast at this event! My son especially enjoyed the live reindeer last year …
Two local farms in the Kokomo area invite you to visit for some “fun on the farm” this holiday season. Kids will enjoy visits with Santa (and his reindeer!), making Christmas crafts & more. If you are looking for something a little different to do this year or need a break from Christmas shopping, bring your family to Kokomo and enjoy some holiday fun on the farm!
