Santa and Mrs. Claus will be there to greet everyone and have their photographs taken – parents are encouraged to bring their cameras so they can “capture the magic”.

Bring your family and enjoy your community’s Enchanted Forest beginning next Saturday. If you have any questions, please contact the Lamar Chamber of Commerce at 719-336-4379.
