12:00pm – 6:00pm. Join us at a special school for kids who want to help Santa by becoming an Elf! The fun begins at 12:00 pm with Christmas Carols ringing throughout the streets of Downtown OWA, with a local choir group spreading cheer with Christmas carols. The Elf Academy kicks off at noon when would-be Elves travel from station to station perfecting their Elf skills, including cookie decorating, reindeer food making, relay races, toy building, hot coco making and caroling, until you finish elf school and gain your elf hat! Then head over to the Gingerbread House Decorating Class, and follow that with some fun pictures with the Elf cutout.
