Holiday Extravaganza

Looks like ole’ Santa is back in town

Young and old alike came out to Eudora High School on Sunday for the annual Holiday Extravaganza sponsored by the Eudora Chamber of Commerce.

Santa was on hand to visit with the children so they could whisper their list of fun toys and gifts they want him to bring on Christmas.

Students from the Eudora High School Choir sangs Christmas carols to entertain those at the gathering and several trees donated by local businesses and groups were available in an auction.

While the tree donated from Knology (with two KU basketball tickets attached) was a very impressive entry, the very unofficial winner, in our humble opinion, was the City of Eudora’s tree with red police/fire flashing light at top.  Whomever won the auction on this tree has a definite conversation piece, though I would imagine the Police Department might have something to say if they try to use that tree topper on their car instead.

Outside, horse drawn sleigh rides were available for those willing to brave the chilly temperatures.  All proceeds from the tree auction and the rides benefited CLO’s Midnight Farm located just south of Eudora.  Midnight Farm specializes in helping those with disabilities to experience what a farm is like and offer many activities designed to educate and help those with intellectual disabilities.  For more information about Midnight Farm you can go to:  http://www.midnight-farm.org

The Eudora Chamber of Commerce will once again sponsor this year’s Holiday Extravaganza this Sunday from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM. This year, the event will be held at Eudora High School.

This yearly event always features a multitude of activities.  Horse drawn sleigh rides will be available with the proceeds from the sleigh rides to benefit CLO’s Midnight Farm located just south of Eudora.

There will also be a decorated Christmas tree silent auction.  The trees are traditionally decorated by local Eudora businesses.  This year, at least one of the trees will feature a Wizard of Oz theme with some very collectible and highly sought after ornaments.

Musical entertainment, treats for the kids and of course, pictures with jolly old Santa Claus will also be available.  The chamber is requesting that, for pictures with Santa, you bring either 2 canned, non-perishable foot items or a suggested donation of $5 with the items and donations.

Several local businesses are also sponsors of this annual holiday tradition including LMH Eudora Therapy Services, Attorney Amy Durkin, Mateo Chiropractic, Coventry health Care, Medicalodges Eudora and McDonald’s.
