A dreary Sunday afternoon was brightened by Christmas spirit as the Henry Arts Alliance held a Christmas festival.

The event featured a Grinch, food and live music.

This year, Ola’s chorus performed at the event.

“It was really fun because we got to be around children and sing for the community,” Ronnie Lloyd, senior, said.

“Even though it was raining, it was still fun. The Grinch came out, and we took pictures. We were able to keep smiling and trying to brighten others’ days ,” Lloyd said.

Junior, Jacob Wojnowski’s father was the Grinch at the event.

“I’d say [my father being the Grinch] is fairly accurate,” said Wojnowski, “I’m proud, if not slightly entertained.”

The event was enjoyed by many.

“It’s nice to see so many people coming together to celebrate an established holiday,” Wojnowski said.
