Christmas in Mount Morris will commence at 9:00 a.m. with the Mount Morris Kiwanis Breakfast with Santa held at the Mount Morris VFW.
Beginning at 11:00 a.m., a variety of activities will be available including a scavenger hunt, a holiday open house at Mills Mansion, face painting, ornament painting, horse-drawn carriage rides, a live nativity scene, storytelling with Mrs. Claus, and more.
Golden tickets were given to Mount Morris elementary students up to fourth grade. The winner of the golden ticket drawing will have the opportunity to light the Christmas Tree and will be able to take the first horse-drawn carriage ride.
