Santa Claus was the main attraction for children and parents at the annual Christmas at the Ranch, held at The Rivers Ranch on Saturday, Nov. 21. But for those who wanted to get a little Christmas shopping in, there were also plenty of arts and crafts vendors, food vendors, and live music. Social distancing and masks were encouraged, temperatures were checked before anyone entered the main building, and there were hand sanitizing stations located around the venue. Entry was $4 per person and children under 12 were free, and all gate proceeds benefited Butts Mutts.
