LINCOLNTON—Here comes Santa Claus, right down Gamble Drive!

Yes, jolly, ole St. Nick himself will make an appearance this Friday, 5-9 p.m., at the Arts Council of Lincoln County’s third annual Festival of Trees. This Kids’ Night event will be held at the former CMC-Lincoln Medical Center at 200 Gamble Drive, according to Laurie Cox Bostian of Lincolnton.

The arts council’s executive director, Bostian said Monday that your members of the small-fry set won’t want to miss Santa’s big scene.

“The Alpha Delta Kappa Sorority will be helping us on Kids’ Night by telling Christmas stories to little ones and creating handmade crafts with them,” she said. “We’re so excited to have them as volunteers to help us make this night special for kids!”

And Santa will be available for photographs that night, too, as well as many other fun photo opportunities in the event’s kids’ space, thanks to local artist Robert Webb and wife Jenna.

Also appearing will be magician Rick Ramseur, as Bostian noted.

Ramseur, she said, “will dazzle us all again this year! His magic show is just wonderful!”

And kids will also have an opportunity to ride the Little Blue Choo-Choo, located outside the venue.

“They’ll want to bundle up!” said Bostian. “Hot chocolate will be available to warm them up afterwards in our ‘Way-Back Café.’ And lots of Christmas-themed baked goods will be sold in our café this year! Don’t miss this fun night!”

Kids in pajamas get in free. Admission for kids 6-18 years of age is $2 that night. Seniors get in for $4, and general admission is $5.
