It felt a lot like the holidays this past Friday as Main Street Wellington helped the community celebrate Christmas in July. Becky Burkhardt played seasonal songs on her Celtic harp as Santa and Mrs. Claus walked around and posed for pictures with children. Main Street director Jennifer Arntz said she wanted to do something special for this summer’s remaining concerts in the park. She passed out candy canes to the children and audience members and coordinated a faux snowball fight with giant marshmallows. The Salvation Army also signed up volunteers to ring bells during the holiday season.
