Once upon a Christmas

Bring the entire family to the Winchester Square Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. for the sixth annual Once upon a Christmas event.

The day starts at 9 a.m. with an opportunity to enjoy breakfast with Santa and the Christmas fairies Holly Berry and Winter.

The wondrous event will take place at the Winchester Livery, off the square in Downtown Winchester.

The breakfast will include sing-alongs, a story and a visit with Santa as well as a photographer who will capture the special occasion for those who desire to purchase a photo.

If possible, diners are asked to bring a toy to donate to the local toy drive. The breakfast is sponsored by Ever After Productions and Sunrise (The Breakfast Place) and requires the purchase of a ticket for $15.

Tickets are also available for anyone who would like to see the “Frozen 2” premier at 9:30 a.m. at the Oldham Theatre with the Snow Sisters.

Contact Montana Medina for tickets to the breakfast or movie premier at YourEverAfterProductions@gmail.com.

The day will be filled with plenty of free events as well, including character meet and greets and photo opportunities from 12:30-3 p.m. and free carriage rides and face painting.

At 11 a.m., the free princess royal court entrance and interactive sing-along will be held with performances by all the popular princesses from Princess Parties by Ever After Productions Tennessee.

Santa will be available to meet everyone from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Winchester Livery, and parents will have the option of purchasing a photo from professional photographers Kathy Bennett and Moe Photo.

The police and firefighters will add to the merriment at 3 p.m. with a lip-sync competition.
