Many holiday events and activities are taking place this weekend, including in Florence. The city is gearing up for the annual Christmas in Florence event taking place on Saturday from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. This year at the event, there will be an ice carving contest, as well as visits and pictures with Santa. Various musical performances will take place at the Encore Ballroom in the afternoon, and the House Decorating Contest will end with some grand prizes.
â??Weâ??re going to have a drawing, a random drawing, to appreciate these people that are participating in the contest,â?? said town clerk treasurer, Shelly VanPembrook. â??They can drive through any time they want; throughout the holiday season, they should be up."
