It’s been 28 years since Leola Rodd started the first holiday arts and craft show in Carlton, an event that sparked a Christmas tradition that continues through today.
Saturday’s Carlton Community Christmas Celebrations promises plenty for the young and the young at heart.
It all happens at the high school, starting with a pancake breakfast from 8-11 a.m. as well as arts and crafts displays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Kids can enjoy Breakfast with Santa from 10-11 a.m., followed by kids’ activities and pictures with Santa from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., all free and accompanied by special Christmas music.
“It’s hectic, but it’s gotten easier over the years,” said Rodd, who is also mayor of Carlton. “There should be a lot going on – lots of kids’ activities – and it’s all free.”
Donations of toys, hats and mittens are also being collected for Carlton area kids at the following locations:
Inter-Faith Care Center in Carlton, Get Fuzed in Carlton, Woodland General Insurance in Carlton, Frandsen Bank & Trust in Carlton, Wells Fargo of Carlton, Northwoods Credit Union in Cloquet (Stanley Avenue), Carlton High School Library, South Terrace Elementary in Carlton, and Wrenshall School.
