Set aside November 28, 2008 for the Holly Days in Vernal Utah. There will be events to participate in from 12-9 pm. The list is so long that I will just mention a few.
The day starts with a Turkey Drawing at 12:00 pm at the Cobble Rock Park and there is a prize drawing at 8:30 pm at the county building. You must be present to win.
You can enjoy a ride in a horse drawn carriage, ride the Holly Trolley between venues, or let the children ride the Polar Express Children's Train Ride.
A Christmas matinee is available or for the more adventurous the Community Center is offering swimming, rock wall climbing, and an obstacle course.
There is something for everyone from concerts, crafts, ice skating, carnival rides and games, professional ice sculpturing demonstration, and soap carving.
You can participate in a photo contest, the winter tales creative writing/poetry contest, or even a wii video challenge.
It would not be the Holly Days without the Parade of lights and the Heritage Garden lighting Ceremony. Not to be missed is the roasting of chestnuts and marshmallows, Churros, Cotton candy, and a cup of hot chocolate. Santa will make an appearance following the parade. The evening will end with fireworks.
