It’s time to bundle up the family and come out to the JJ Biello Park in Woodstock for the fourth annual Canes and Cocoa event! You’ve heard of Easter egg hunts, but have you heard of a Christmas candy hunt? That’s only part of the fun at Canes and Cocoa. After children are separated into age groups and sent out to find treats in the field, on the large playground, and on the small playground, they are invited to the pavillion with their families. While in the pavillion, families enjoy making memories together with hot chocolate and candy canes while visiting with surprise Christmas guests. Families are also welcome to take a ride on the Cherokee Recreation & Parks Agency “Sleigh” (tractor). Join the CRPA for this fun-filled event on Saturday, Dec. 13 at 10am. Cost is $5.
The CRPA has additional Holiday events taking place as well. These include Santa Calling and Santa’s Letters, and a chance to swim with the Grinch!
With a simple form, you can arrange to have Santa Claus and his elves call your child on Dec. 15. You’ll want to make sure you include the phone number to be reached at along with any special gifts or items that you’ll want Santa to mention. After all, Santa is checking his list!
Drop off your child’s letter to Santa at the Recreation Center located at 7545 Main Street in Woodstock and Santa will mail a personal letter back to your child from the North Pole! Cost is $2 per letter, and you can drop off letters from your children between Dec. 1 and Dec. 12.
Saturday, Dec. 6, the Grinch will be at the Cherokee Aquatic Center from 1pm-5pm. Children are welcome to enjoy this fun holiday swim, and get pictures taken with the Grinch. Cost is $7, includes swim time, photo time, and a special holiday treat! Sign up in advance with the CRPA.
