It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas in Warren County with an abundance of holiday activities this weekend. 

Saturday, Dec. 11 is packed full of Christmas options to enjoy. 

The second annual Holly Jolly Holiday Bash is Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Three Star Mall. 

There will be arts and crafts, a kid’s zone, Santa pictures, food vendors, boutiques, and more. Admission is free and there will be many vendors set up for holiday shopping. 

The Santa Paws Open House at Warren County Animal Control and Adoption Center will also be Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Everyone is invited to help make Christmas a little brighter for the pets. 

Some animals will be finding their forever home this holiday season, but others will be looked over so this is an opportunity to bring those dogs and cats a Christmas stocking full of treats and toys. There will be drinks and snacks available for human visitors.

McMinnville Special Games will be holding Christmas Pictures with Santa and the Ponies on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on The Lot in downtown McMinnville on Court Square. Pictures are $8 per child or adult and proceeds will benefit McMinnville Special Games, a nonprofit for adults and children with special needs. Hot cocoa and popcorn will be sold and those waiting will be able to pet the ponies. 

Pet owners can get their pets involved in the Christmas fun with Pet Santa Pics, a fundraiser for HAWC. The pet pictures will be at Citizens Tri-County Bank from 9 to 11 a.m. They ask for a $5 donation.

Main Street McMinnville is offering a behind-the-scenes look at downtown decorations with its Holiday Tour of Downtown. The tour will be from 4 to 6 p.m. and tickets are $25. Tickets will be available to purchase the night of the event. Tour-goers will get to go on a decoration tour in select downtown businesses and homes.

The Vine Baptist Church will be presenting a Drive-Thru Living Nativity Story on Saturday, Dec. 11 and Sunday, Dec. 12 from 6 to 8 p.m. each night. The entrance for this show is located at 210 C. Rody Road.
