Newman Village will present It's a Wonderful Life, a day of holiday revelry and old-fashioned fun. Visitors can ride down the street in Mr. Potter’s horse-drawn carriage, skate on the ice with family and friends, take a ride on a holiday decorated Bedford Falls Express choo-choo train and play in the pristine, white snow. It’s all a part of an extraordinary holiday experience bringing the fun-filled days and old-fashioned fun of yesteryear to Newman Village.
Children and adults alike will marvel at a celebration that’s alive with the sights and sounds of carolers singing as they promenade around central plaza and the excited cheers of children as they sled down a hill of snow.
Presented by Baylor Medical Center at Frisco, the event also includes caroling during Zuzu’s choral hour, live holiday music from a brass band and a visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus themselves.
Adults are free and children’s tickets can be purchased ahead of time for $5 each at friscoisd.org/FEF. Tickets on the night of the event will be $10 for the first child and $5 for each additional child. Photos with Santa Claus cost $10.
Food will be available for purchase from local food trucks Ruthie’s Rolling Cafe, OinkNMoo BBQ, Eat Jo Dawgs and Easy Sliders. Other food vendors anticipated to participate include Chick-Fil-A and Coffee-N-Cream.
All proceeds will go to benefit Frisco Education Foundation for teachers through Grants For Great Ideas, Mindbender Academy, and providing scholarships and support to generations of students enrolled in Frisco Independent School District.
