The 14th annual Christmas in Candyland event, a holiday party for youngsters throughout the Atmore area, will take place this Saturday, December 18, at Grace Fellowship Church.
The fun and fellowship will begin at 3 p.m., said Betty Cox, founder and administrator of Change of Mind Outreach, the event’s sponsor. The annual party includes a hot meal, free Christmas goodies, free toys and games for the youngsters, and door prizes that in the past have included bicycles and television sets.
Santa and Mrs. Claus will be in attendance, and a group of costumed cartoon characters is expected to help with the holiday celebration, which also includes singing of Christmas carols and brief Bible readings.
Grace Fellowship is located along U.S. 31 (East Nashville Avenue), about a mile past Medical Park Drive.
