The Dunn County Fair Board is holding a Christmas Celebration at the High Plains Cultural Center on December 20, from 4:00 – 11:00 p.m. A large group of community members have been hard at work planning a fun-filled evening of Christmas festivities.
It’s a family event and all area residents are invited to attend.
Activities will include a potluck supper (meat, beans, and corn entrees are being provided), a silent auction, caroling, a Community Band Performance, a family dance featuring the Benny Paulson Band, a silent auction, the drawing for the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado Pickup raffle (get your tickets at the High Plains Cultural Center, from Dunn County Fair Board members or at a number of area businesses) and hot chocolate and cookies for everyone.
The celebration includes a contest to decorate a Christmas tree (you supply the tree and ornaments). Entrants are limited to 25 trees, if you’re interested (groups, families, businesses are all welcome) contact Ken Roshau, HPCC manager at 701-764-6533 to reserve your space. Trees will be decorated a few days in advance.
Please feel free to bring an ornament to help decorate the HPCC’s first Christmas Tree!
Kids activities are scheduled from 4:00 to 5:30 p.m.; they include photos and a visit with Santa, cookies, cider and hot chocolate, a coloring contest and crafts.
From 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. is the potluck and audiovisual presentation. Please bring salads, vegetables, and/or desserts. A full bar and non-alcoholic beverage will be available.
From 6:30 to 9:00 p.m. there will be a Community Band Performance, silent auction winners and tree decorating contest winners announced, and the winner of the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado pickup will be drawn.
A dance with music by Benny Paulson will be from 9:00 to 11:00 p.m.
