Fairytales will come true as Winter Wonderland returns for a fifth year in Kearny.

Houses in the Copper Basin area are being decorated with care being taken to save some lights for Electric Light Parade entries, and battery power to make it from Allen Street to the former cafeteria Ramada.

Join in and make this a ‘Fairytale Christmas Celebration’ Saturday Dec. 1.

Santa will be arriving at 2 p.m. starting with a trip through town via a fire engine and possibly helicopter aerial support. Junior Chamber elves, princesses and princes will assist Santa on his first visit to the Copper Basin.

Junior Chamber members will also be selling luminarios with the proceeds going to ASU’s Autism/Aspergers Research program. This lovely array of light will be displayed on Alden Street, Friday, Dec. 21 at the Love Light ceremony.

The event opens at 11 a.m. with reindeer games, Event Wizard, karaoke, Dance Party, merchandise and food booths; Magee’s fry bread, funnel cakes, curly fries; Scott Thompson Scholarship menudo and posole; CAC Aravaipa coffee, Mexican Hot Chocolate and pastry; Junior Chamber sodas, hot tea and s’mores prepared over coals.

On the schedule and ready to entertain are Copper Basin Idols, Old School and the Cardells.

The electric light parade begins at 6 p.m.

After the parade winners have been announced there will be a free screening of Arthur Christmas will be shown at the Ramada.
