Pioneer Village’s Winter Wonderland begins Saturday at fairgrounds

Posted December 5, 2018 at 7:51 pm

With Old Man Winter causing much havoc with Christmas activities this past weekend, Pioneer Village Winter Wonderland activities will now be held the next two weekends, Dec. 8 and 9 and Dec. 15 and 16.

The Lighted Christmas Parade will be at 6 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 8 along Central Avenue in Le Mars.

Then the fun begins at the Plymouth County Fairgrounds, which has been turned into a “Winter Wonderland.”

All activities are free.

In Pioneer Village, there will be wagon rides, Santa Claus will visit with children in the Sportsmans Club building, children can get a toy at the Toy Club building, food in the Luxemborg building, and the Round Barn is filled with Christmas displays.

In Century Hall, there is the Festival of Trees, refreshments and musical entertainment.
