Overbrook Overlook: City brims with holiday spirit

Hometown for the Holidays

Enjoy this 2nd annual Overbrook holiday event, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 24, 2018. There will be vendors at Overbrook Public Library, a 4-H bake sale, lunch specials at TJ’s, tasting at Overbrook Spirits, Santa Claus photos at Overbrook Public Library, with one free 5×7 photo courtesy of Kansas State Bank; photos begin at 11 a.m. Shopping locally is a great way to support your hometown and support small town merchants and vendors. Many will have “show specials” available that day only.
