Treeson In Williams!

WILLIAMS—After a day at Bearizona, a parade through the heart of downtown on Route 66, the City of Williams turned on its official Christmas tree blocking 2nd Street between Route 66 and Grant.

That is not the only tree that is on. Trees are decorated for visitors coming into town from each direction except South Road. Visitors can tour the city to find houses lit throughout the city. Beginning next Sunday at 4 pm, St. John’s Episcopal-Lutheran Church will hold Advent concerts each Sunday leading up to their Christmas meeting. Visitors and residents are welcome to come and enjoy the music and song of the season.

Many people started Saturday with a trip to Bearizona; still open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Bearizona is the wildlife drive-through park it Williams which houses American Bison, Arctic wolves, and, of course, bears. Kids were treated to a visit with Santa and all of the visitors were treated to watching the animals open their “presents.”

The Polar Express still runs twice an evening to visit Santa at the North Pole. Bearizona is remaining open and downtown shops are stocked up.
