TO DO THIS WEEKEND: Santa's Helper Fair Saturday in McAlester

The annual Santa’s Helper Fair will be held Saturday at the A.J. Horton Event Center. 


1. Fun and free activities for children

2. Pictures with Santa

3. The vendor fees from over 45 vendors and money raised from the event will benefit the local Angel Tree


“We will have almost 50 different booths to shop from as well as family fun activities - ornament painting, cookie decorating, writing a letter to Santa, and bouncy houses,” said organizer Amber Paoli. “Santa pictures this year will be done by LaMon Photography. Kids will get a little treat from Santa too. Our local Spiderman and Elsa will be here too! This is our sixth show and we always have some of the best vendors and shoppers help give Christmas to kids here in McAlester who wouldn’t have Christmas without their giving and generosity.”
