Are you yet fully submerged in the holiday season? The City of Dallas Parks and Recreation department is hosting a citywide event next weekend, right here in our neighborhood, sure to help you into the mood. The free festivities dubbed Winterfest 2009 are Saturday, Dec. 5 at 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. at Norbuck Park. Enjoy crafts (if we’re lucky, some from our cover story sweethearts), live entertainment, carriage rides, tree lighting and photos with Santa. If you’d like more info or to find out how to get involved, contact Parks rep Reginald Hurd at 214-670-8889.
