DELANO, MN – While everyone has been enjoying the summer weather, the Delano Arts and Culture Council has been planning an exciting event in Delano for Saturday, Dec. 5.

The council will host “An Old Fashioned Christmas in Historic Downtown Delano,” in conjunction with area organizations and businesses.

Planned activities include an art walk, carolers on the street corners, Girl Scout Secret Santa Shoppe, Christmas cards for soldiers, Rivertown Boutique, a youth art show, and Christmas story time, among other events still in the works.

Several events, for all ages, will be at the Delano Senior Center and the Community Education building.

Everyone is encouraged to search for Santa, and enjoy specials at local restaurants.

The evening will be capped by the final performance of “Amahl and the Night Visitors” at St. Peter’s Catholic Church.
