.100_2156Just as we thought we had Santa’s reindeer secured during Santa’s visit last night, they wanted to get in on all the fun too. Remember, tonight is the last night for Santa’s annual visits to the Santa House

Some Holiday Fun!

December 20th, 2013

Christmas is only days away, and we thought we’d include some holiday fun from our four legged friends.

Also, you can bring your furry friends by the Santa House tonight and tomorrow from 6 to 8 p.m. to have their pics taken with Santa too.

7th Annual Strawberry Festival

June 7th, 2013


Live Streaming from the Strawberry Festival’s BerryCam will start at 1 p.m. EDT

Live video from your iPhone using Ustream

Clay County Christmas In The Park will once again offer members of the community an opportunity to cool off in the summer heat.
The seventh Strawberry Festival will take place Friday, June 7, 2013 from 11 a.m.-7 p.m., or until the food runs out.

The event will take place on the lawn of the Clay County Courthouse.

Customers will be able to enjoy ice cream, strawberries and shortcake with whipped toppings. There will also be hot dogs, coney dogs and drinks available.

The local Wendy’s in Brazil offered to donate their freezers this year to help out.

The costs will be the same as every year, with nothing more than $6. The $6 item, “The Works,” includes everything possible on the menu: Ice cream, strawberries, shortcake and whipped topping.

However, customers may also order any combination of dessert they want.

“They can get strawberries and ice cream,” Clay County Christmas in the Park president Lana Ray said. “They can get strawberries and shortcake. They can get it with or without topping. They can get plain strawberries. They can get plain ice cream.”

Christmas In The Park will again be the recipient of the donations.

“It costs $10,000 to do the parade and light everything every year,” Ray said. “Not a lot of people know that.”

However, some of the money this year will go to a worthwhile organization.

“A portion of the proceeds that we get from the strawberry festival this year are going to go towards Relay For Life,” Ray said. “Every bit of the money that we raise goes back into the community somewhere.”
