first_imgENDWELL (WBNG) — From crafts to pictures with Santa, the first ever Visions of Christmas event was all about holiday cheer. “We’re here for the winter fun, for the holiday activities and to bring the little one to have fun,” said Karen Gonzalez of Port Crane. “We’ve been very busy today we’ve had cookie decorating lots of crafts of course Santa is here with his elves,” said DeHate. The event was a collaborative effort between Visions Federal Credit Union and the Town of Union. “I was trying to hang out with my family and my Nana told me this was a good park to sled at and we’re just ready to have some fun,” said Serenity Slater of Whitney Point. “It’s wonderful to bring the families out for things to do its very very nice our communities need more things like this,” said Gonzalez. The event at Visions included a visit from Santa as well as some balloon twisters. Meanwhile at Highland Park, the holiday fun continued with outdoor activities including a mechanical reindeer. Also a sense of community, no matter the weather. “We’ve had an event here from 1 p.m. until 4 p.m. and up at Highland Park they have festivities starting at 2:30,” said Mandy DeHate of Visions Federal Credit Union. Having fun seemed to be a common theme for everyone who stopped by Highland Park Sunday afternoon. “Being a part of the Town of Union we thought it was really important to have a collaborative event,” DeHate said. The event also included a tree lighting and fireworks show.last_img
