Sublette preparing for "Christmas in the Village"

Event to be held Dec. 7 in downtown Sublette


SUBLETTE – The village of Sublette will ring in the holidays during its annual Christmas Walk, “Christmas in the Village,” on Thursday, Dec. 7. The Christmas Walk committee promises something for the whole family.

A craft and vendor show will be held at 5 p.m. at the Sublette Community Building. Janet Nagel, chairman of the event, said there will be a large variety of vendors that can fulfill your holiday shopping needs. There will also be vendors at LaFiesta Restaurant from 6-9 p.m., and the restaurant will feature specials, including margaritas.

The evening’s festivities will continue with the official lighting of the village Christmas tree at 6:30 p.m. This will be followed by caroling led by local 4-H members.

At 7 p.m., Santa Claus will arrive and will greet children with treats at his headquarters next to the post office. There will also be treats for everyone in attendance as members of the Sublette Business Association will provide cookies and beverages.

Ellie Rae’s Boutique, Furniture Overload, and Local Cup and Cake, all located in the Village Mall, will be open during the evening. Main Street Repair owners will also have their showroom open to welcome visitors.

“Christmas in the Village” is always the highlight of the Christmas season in Sublette. Families are invited to come and enjoy a festive evening. If you plan to attend, bring a donation of food and toys that will then be given to the needy at Christmas.

Visitors are also encouraged to sign up for a drawing of free gifts.
