Christmas came early to Solon Market last Saturday, October 12, as Santa arrived for a visit, bringing Mrs. Clause and a fill-in for Donner, who was busy training reindeer.
Santa and family dressed for the occasion in Red Flannels (courtesy of Sally Howland) to show support for the city once known as “Red Flannel Town.” There were crafts, treats, toys and smiles in abbundance.
This week the Market is hosting “Trunk or Treat” with a costume party and parade as well as some early trick-or-treating. The costume contest begins at 11:00 a.m., with the parade following at about 11:30. There will be face painting or a craft.
