Randall’s Holly Day, in its third year, will be kicking off the holidays Thursday,  Dec. 5. The town will be packed with people ready to get in the spirit.

That day, Gosch’s is sponsoring Taste of the Seasons. The store will be filled with great food and even better aromas from 4 p.m. – 7 p.m. Food samples, along with recipes will be available for all who venture in.

A choir will be at Gosch’s during the event, singing Christmas carols.

While sitting on Santa’s lap at the VFW, children will also receive a bag of candy. Vision Randall/Quality of Life will be sponsoring the pictures, free of charge.

Santa will be at the VFW until 7 p.m.

The Randall Cushing Little Elk Lions Club members have set up a Santa’s Workshop at the VFW. There, children of all ages will be able to make gifts for family and friends.

At 5 p.m. in Bingo Park, the Hospice Tree of Love will be lit by the Randall Cushing Little Elk Lions.

Sue Kliber will be entertaining both children and adults with her music at the VFW from 5:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.

Hot dogs and chips will be sold by the VFW Auxiliary to curb the appetites created by all the excitement.

At the south end of Pacific Avenue, beginning at 4 p.m., a bonfire will be lit and ingredients for S’mores will be available until 7 p.m.

Beginning at 3 p.m., horse-drawn trolley rides through the streets of Randall will start at Kim’s on Pacific Avenue. Free hot chocolate and cookies will be available.
