Bundle up and enjoy Lyndon’s celebration of winter; arctic blast in forecast

Lyndon downtown at night.

Lyndon’s lit up for the holidays, but the town’s annual winter celebration begins Saturday morning with a parade, craft show and visit from Santa Claus.


Although Lyndon is already lighted and decorated for the Christmas season, holiday celebration begins in earnest this Saturday with the traditional Christmas parade and craft show. Anther event that will complete the Winter Festival is the drawing for Reindeer Raffle prizes, to be held at noon at Lyndon High School.

The day begins with a burrito breakfast at 8 a.m. at Lyndon High School, sponsored by Lyndon UMC Youth, and the 8:30 a.m. Winter Festival 5k Run & Walk, from which proceeds will be donated in honor of the late Mary Ann Feltner.

The craft fair starts at 9 a.m. at the high school, and will offer gifts, baked goods and handicrafts until 2 p.m.; sponsored by Lyndon Endowment Association.

Lyndon Carnegie Library, 127 E. Sixth St., will have an open house from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. featuring cocoa, cookies, raffle drawings, and kids’ crafts.

The Winterfest Parade begins at 10:30 a.m., and is routed on Topeka Avenue to Sixth Street to the high school. The parade is sponsored by Lyndon Pride, which is offering cash prizes in seven categories. Parade participants are asked to register at Lyndon City Hall or gather at 9:30 a.m. behind the high school.

A chili and soup feed, sponsored by the Lyndon Masonic Lodge, will begin at 11 a.m. at Lyndon High School. From 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Santa will visit the high school for photos with good kids, young and old.

The highlight of the event will be the drawing for prizes in the Reindeer Raffle, starting at noon at the high school. Entrants who have submitted raffle tickets during the community-wide contest must be present to win any of the more than $750 in prizes.

And as proof winter is here, Saturday’s forecast for Lyndon is partly cloudy with a 40 percent chance of snow, high of 21 and low of 16.
