'Christmas in Village' to offer chance to see Santa, opportunity to win prizes

People who participate in the "Christmas in the Village" event Friday and Saturday have the chance of winning one of three gift baskets.

Shoppers who get a merchant card stamped Friday or Saturday from 22 of the 27 merchants will be entered into a raffle to win one the baskets. Deanna Green with Kay-Lynn Massage and Bodywork Studio said the cards are to "encourage people to step into shops they have never been."

Saturday's events include a visit from Santa Claus at Steps on Ingleside from noon the 3 p.m., live music at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. and children's activities at Ciao Bella Boutique.
