Snow Much Fun in the Square on December 12

December 3, 2014 -

Springer Market Square will come alive with seasonal cheer on Friday, Dec. 12 starting at 5 p.m. for Snow Much Fun.

"This community event is a great way to enjoy outdoor fun with family and friends and set the tone for an active winter and magical holiday season," Nancy Ruel, Supervisor, Special Events & Marketing.

Enjoy musical performances by Mulberry Waldorf School Choir, The Big Phat Horn Band, Gary Rasberry, The Greater Kingston Chorus and the Kingston Carollers in the Square's amphitheatre. Bring a blanket to sit on so that you will be cozy and comfortable.

Come skate in the Square (weather-permitting), then hop aboard the Jingle Bell Express, visit with Santa and his reindeer, have a hot chocolate (for a donation to Kingston 4 Paws Service Dogs), decorate gingerbread cookies and visit our holiday craft market.

Remember to dress warmly and bring a new unwrapped top for the Salvation Army Toy Drive.

Crafters: Set up a stall at the Holiday Craft Market

Holiday crafters/local businesses are invited to set-up holiday craft market stalls to showcase their decorative holiday items, handmade gifts and other unique gift items. The 15-stall holiday market will run from 5 to 9 p.m. during the Snow Much Fun event. In lieu of the license fee, participating crafters are asked to bring a toy of greater or equal value to the cost of the stall ($39.65) for the Salvation Army Toy Drive.  Stalls will be made available on a first come, first-served basis and applications will be accepted until December 9.
