Christmas Magic and Merriment and Santa Too!

The holidays are a time of merriment and fun, and our friends at Young & Established are bringing a little holiday magic to downtown Evansville with their Holiday Fun Event. Visitors to this free event will have the opportunity to take photos with Santa in a fun photo booth setting, as well as participate in other exciting holiday festivities like writing letters to Santa and face painting.

Cookie Decorating Station

The holidays aren't complete without cookies but sometimes the mess and the expense can be too much. Luckily, Young & Established will be hosting a cookie decorating station at the Holiday Fun event! No baking and no mess in the kitchen! Kids and families can decorate premade cookies for a little festive fun!
