Much of Martin Luther King Park will become a Holiday Village for every weekend in December, with a raft of family-oriented events and attractions.

City and business officials announced the event this morning.

Starting on December 1 and continuing on weekends through Sunday, December 23, there'll be a Santa's workshop, music and other entertainment, Breakfast with Santa events, crafts classes, an elf workshop, a mini-makers fair, food and merchandise vendors, and ice skating on the park's ice rink. 

Holiday Village founders are Jenna Manetta-Knauf of the event planning company Bella Events; Sean McCarthy of McCarthy Tents; and Webster resident Kelli Marsh.
