20181128 BrownsvilleHolidayVillage 5149The Holiday Village in Brownsville just keeps growing and getting better and better each year. As the village opened – lights on for their ninth season – Bean Ayala, the emcee, announced there are 33 cottages on display this year – more than ever.

The village is open daily, now through January 1. Admission is free. While the village is open during the day, the lights come on at 6 p.m., so for the best enjoyment of the cheerfully decorated – and lighted – cottages come by after 6 p.m. Food, drink and craft vendors will be at the village every weekend, and some week nights. Entertainers will also be performing in the pavilion throughout the holiday season.

The Elf of the Shelf contest is back again this year. “There are many elves in the Holiday Village but there is only one Fritter!” Fritter is always holding a tiny box of Krispy Kreme donuts,” explained Ayala.

20181128 VILLAGE ACCOUNTANTSJust like other Elves on the Shelf, Fritter is being sent to keep an eye on the boys and girls here. Every night, from Thanksgiving through Christmas Eve, he flies back to the North Pole to tell Santa who’s being naughty and who’s being nice!

You can find him hiding in a different cottage each day and enter to win some great prizes from Krispy Kreme. Here is how to have fun entering the contest: First, find Fritter’s hiding spot. Then take a picture in front of the cottage where you found him and post the photo on YOUR Facebook page using #IFOUNDFRITTER. That’s all; you’ve entered the contest. Now go out and have some fun. See who in your group will be the first one to find Fritter’s hiding spot tonight. Hint: He hides in different cottages night after night. All of the Elf on the Shelf contest rules are posted on the village website at www.holidayvillagebrownsville.com.

Santa Claus will be available for complimentary photos too. He’ll be at the gazebo Fridays and Saturdays from 6-9 p.m. and Sundays from 6-8 p.m. Be sure to bring your camera or smartphone to take photos to share with family and friends.

Come enjoy the holiday season with us at the Brownsville Holiday Village.20181128 NORTH POLE CLINIC
