The snowmen past and present, and Four Seasons art display at the arts center will be open Saturday 10-2, and Sunday 1-4.
The annual event, coordinated by the retail committee will be held as originally scheduled this Saturday.
Other events, including the Jingle Run, and Santa’s Christmas Parade will be postponed until the following Saturday, December 2nd due to the game.
