Henderson residents flocked to the annual WinterFest celebration Saturday in the city’s historic Water Street District.
The holiday event, which began Friday evening with the annual tree-lighting ceremony, offered plenty to see and do at the Henderson Events Plaza, 200 Water St.
The festival offered opportunities to visit a gift and craft fair, mail a letter to Santa, decorate cookies in Mrs. Claus’ bakery and build a toy in Santa’s workshop. It also featured a gingerbread house contest, entertainment and food vendors.
A highlight of Saturday’s events was the 5 p.m. WinterFest Evening Light Parade, which featured more than 60 entries reflecting a “North Pole Adventures” theme.
