Christmas in Somerset event slated for Dec. 8

The annual Christmas in Somerset event is scheduled for Monday, Dec. 8 at Veteran's Park from 5:30-8:30 p.m.

Traditionally it has been the first Monday of December, but the Chamber Board decided to move it back one week due to the late Thanksgiving holiday.

Horse-drawn sleigh rides will be available, as well as photo opportunities with Santa. The Dynamics, Somerset High School's performance choir, will be on hand to sing Christmas carols around the bonfire. Concessions will also be available to purchase hot dogs, hot chocolate and apple cider.

In addition, this year marks the second annual holiday decorating contest. Anyone living in the 54025 area is eligible. Nominating forms will be available at local Somerset businesses and through the Chamber's Web site at Judging will take place the week of Dec. 14; the top three winners will receive cash prizes and be photographed for the newspaper. The contest is sponsored by Xcel Energy.
