There’s a chill in the air, it finally smells like Fall, and the holidays are right around the corner! We have wonderful traditions in Wells Branch and we want our entire community to join in the celebrations. Reach out to the new folks so they feel welcome. Take time to reconnect with family, friends and neighbors. We look forward to seeing each of you at the festivities!
Friday & Saturday, December 11 & 12 • 6-9pm
Experience the glow of the holidays as our trails light up with luminaries around Katherine Fleischer Park on December 11 & 12. Once again, the WBNA will be hosting Friday night’s events and the Wells Branch MUD will host Saturday evening. Santa will be visiting the Homestead Cabin both nights from 6-9pm with FREE photos provided by WB Community Church.
WBNA sponsored craft tables will be set up both nights inside the Community Center and children will have the opportunity to make jewelry boxes for gifts, decorate ornaments, and color. Dianne Koehler and numerous volunteers will be on hand to assist the children with crafts and MUD staff will keep refreshments flowing.
Join us outdoors for a caroling hayride or a trip around the trails on the holiday express train to see the luminaries up close. We’ll be starting the hayride at 5:30pm both nights so bring the little ones and come early.
Saturday night, the MUD will have live entertainment and the crafts will continue inside the Community Center with refreshments for all to enjoy. Wells Branch Community Church Band will perform outside the Buffalo House both Friday and Saturday.
