Fire Trucks, Chili and Santa's Village in Alderson

Have you ever wanted to ride an antique fire truck? Visit Santaland? Have chili or brown beans and cornbread on a cold winter's night? Well you can do all this in Alderson this weekend.

On Friday December 9, 5 pm until 8 pm, come by the Alderson Fire Department on Railroad Avenue for chili or brown beans and cornbread and a drink for $5. Hot dogs, chips and a drink for the kids. Santa will be there to hear what you might like for Christmas. Take a picture with him 6-8 pm. Hop on an antique fire truck for a drive under the lights across the Memorial bridge for a pay-what-you-can donation (or drive across in your car). Have a fun evening, start a new tradition, and support our first responders.

The Alderson Lion invites you to visit Santaland in Alumni Park near the Memorial Bridge. Visit at night for some real magic. Reindeer, a sleigh, trees, Santa's Workshop and Candy Factory are all next to the beautiful Greenbrier River. Peek inside the buildings and see what the elves are up to. See if you can find the one napping in a hammock. You might even see Mrs Claus on Saturday afternoons December 10 & 17, 1-3 pm (weather permitting). You can leave a letter for Santa in the mail box at Santa's Workshop.

While in town remember to visit the shops of Alderson. Wolf Creek Gallery and the Alderson Artisans Gallery have reopened after the flood damage. There is also Alderson's Store and the BridgeWalk Shops for unique and affordable gift items.

For more information call 304-520-2473. Come to Alderson and experience someplace different.
