Reindeer games added to Christmas in the Village

| December 2, 2016

WEST LAFAYETTE – Christmas in the Village of West Lafayette is right around the corner and is always a fun time to enjoy the holiday season with friends and family. With a variety of activities throughout the village and the ever-popular Santa parade, there’s something for everyone to usher in the holiday season.

This year, there will be an addition to the festivities. Kids of all ages can now enjoy reindeer games in Burt Park beginning with a 5K starting at 9 a.m. Cost is $20 to participate and registration is from 8 – 9 a.m. At approximately 10 a.m., the reindeer games will begin with a shot-put snowball toss, a TP snowman race, candy cane relays, and much more.

“There will be a lot of fun games that everyone can take part in,” said Jessie Tubbs, coordinator of the event.

The event is a fundraiser for Ridgewood FFA and the Ridgewood Homecoming Queen court. FFA will be using the money for Christmas presents and the homecoming court will use the money for a luncheon or scholarship.

Sponsors for the 5K include State Farm – Kyle Libby who sponsored the t-shirts and Hillbibbie Clay donated the prizes for the 5K, which will be a Christmas ornament and a mug.

Other activities that day include the West Lafayette Lions Breakfast Buffet from 7:30 to 10 a.m. at the West Lafayette Methodist Church, a craft show at the West Lafayette Baptist Church at 9 a.m., a library open house featuring crafts and door prizes from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m., and the Santa parade at 1 p.m.

“This is just a nice way to fill that gap between the pancake breakfast and craft show and the library open house,” said Tubbs.
