Must read

CROSSLAKE — Crosslake Town Square merchants are building sets, lighting and costumes for the “Whimsical World of Whoville” event Dec. 1-Jan. 15 in Town Square.

Dr. Seuss’ “How the Grinch Stole Christmas!” inspires this year’s decorations and festive activities. Crosslake Town Square will transform into the village of Whoville the evening of Dec. 1 and will include four fun events every other Saturday through Jan. 15.

At 5 p.m. Dec. 1, the Mayor of Whoville, Augustus Maywho, and other Whoville friends will flip the switch to light up the square at the inaugural Crosslake Town Square lighting. Families will also enjoy caroling, hot chocolate, face painting, temporary tattoos, festive snacks, and many photo opportunities. Join the festivities from 4:30-6:30 p.m.

In the following weeks, Whos from all around are invited to join the costume contest, scavenger hunt, gingerbread house party, and snow sculpture building, plus other fun events.

In a news release, the Crosslake Town Square Association expressed its gratitude to the Crosslake Ideal Lions Club for its support as the lead sponsor of this new event.

All events are from 4:30-6:30 p.m. and are free to attend. Festive treats and hot beverages are available.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of “staff.” Often, the “staff” byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.

Hi, I’m the Brainerd Dispatch. I started working a few days before Christmas in 1881 and became a daily paper two years later. I’ve gone through a lot of changes over the years, but what has never changed is my commitment to community and to local journalism. I’ve got an entire team of dedicated people who work night and day to make sure I go out every morning, whether in print, as an e-edition, via an app or with additional information at www.brainerddispatch.com. News, weather, sports — videos, photos, podcasts and social media — all covering stories from central Minnesota about your neighbors, your lakes, your communities, your challenges and your opportunities. It’s all part of the effort to keep people connected and informed. And we couldn’t do it without support.
