VIDEO: Christmas Fest Rouses Revelers
From arts and crafts at Mokena Elementary School to pictures with Santa, the holiday season was welcomed in every which way during Saturday's community-wide event.
It's hard to get in the holiday spirit when the weather is still mild, the decorations are still sparse and the Thanksgiving turkey hasn't even thawed yet. But Mokena got a head start in heralding the season on Saturday at the Chamber of Commerce's 16th Annual Christmas Fest.
The day-long event included a makeshift workshop at Mokena Elementary School, an open house among Mokena's downtown shops, musicians and carolers from Grace Fellowship Church and, of course, a traditional parade and tree-lighting ceremony.
