Santa’s Bobbin’ Into Town Modified, Business Decorating Contest Still On for Pequot Lakes
(PEQUOT LAKES, MN) — In light of recent changes that have been made to the annual “Santa’s Bobbin’ Into Town” event, we spoke with Barb Merritt of Community Action of Pequot Lakes to get the latest insight.
Merritt outlined the recent changes that have been announced to the event, which at one point had been canceled entirely, and explained what the new plan is.
Santa will be in the area from 11am-3pm on Saturday, December 12. While this event is proceeding in a limited and modified manner, one event that is slated to continue unabridged is the annual Business Decorating Contest, which is set to conclude this weekend. Merritt summarized the contest and noted that there is still time for businesses to decorate their exteriors and to take part.
First place prize for the contest is $300, with $150 and $50 going to the second- and third-place finishers respectively. Merritt then explained where to go to find out more information or to be included in the contest for judging.
We thank Barb Merritt for her time. Our full interview with her may be found below.
