Santa

#1 HOLIDAY ROAD

A much-anticipated holiday tradition kicks off Dec. 16 as Santa begins his tour through Decatur escorted by the Decatur Fire Department. Firefighters begin their route nightly at 5 p.m. and aim to finish around 9 p.m. so kids can get in bed.

Santa and his helpers visit a different neighborhood every night, Sunday through Thursday. See the Dec. 12 edition of All Around Wise for this year’s schedule and map.

Pancakes

#2 PANCAKES FOR EVERYONE!

Dig into a pancake breakfast with Santa Claus at the Decatur Fire Department Dec. 15.

Breakfast starts at 7 a.m., and the Jolly Old Elf will arrive at the station on a fire truck at 8:30. The food is free – pancakes, sausage, juice and coffee.

Mom and Dad, bring your cameras so you can take photos as your kids share their Christmas wishes with Santa. The fire department is at 1705 S. State St.

Courthouse

#3 HIP TO BE SQUARE

Saturday on the Square is Dec. 15 and will feature vendors and artists 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. There will be live music and food trucks, including 4 Girls Wood Fired Pizza and Kountry Boy Kettle Corn. Texas Sky will perform at 2 p.m. In addition to the vendors, the shops on the square will also be open.

Last Minute SHopping

#4 SHOP FOR A CAUSE

Still have shopping to do?

Check out the Christmas Market Thursday and Friday in the east campus lobby at Wise Health System in Decatur. Hours are 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday and 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday.

You’ll find apparel, handbags, jewelry and holiday fashions, not to mention goodies for the kiddos. The sale benefits Wise County United Way – two gifts in one.

Christmas Ornaments

Exercise your creative muscles with sculptor Ann Ayres at the Chico Public Library.

Ayres will guide participants as they sculpt their own Christmas ornaments in a special workshop Friday. The fun starts at 4 p.m.
