Wind and bitterly cold temperatures might have threatened Winter Wonderland festivities but not to the point of cancelling the celebration altogether. The parade was called off Friday, but families still got to enjoy Santa’s Playland in the City Auditorium. Similarly, Saturday’s early morning balloon launch had to be cancelled, but the afternoon launch maintained all its visual splendor. There was also the St. John’s One-Stop-Shopping event, the Legion Auxiliary Home Tour and the Historical Society’s open house.
