Take a stroll with your family through the Howard County Fairgrounds in Greentown Saturday night when the Lions Club officially lights up its Christmas display. The lights will be on each night from 6 to 10 p.m. through Christmas day. Visitors will be able drive through the display or park and walk down the Pioneer Village Main Street to see all the Christmas decorations. It's free to see the display, but donations will be accepted. This year the Round Barn will be open nightly for visitors. Visit Santa Claus on Fridays and Saturdays from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Bring your camera and get your picture taken with Santa in a more than 100-year-old sleigh.
