NEW SALEM, North Dakota (STPNS) -- Free turkeys, a craft show, Chinese auction, and a visit from Santa Claus will be the main attractions at the New Salem City Auditorium on Saturday, Dec. 1. It?s all part of The New Salem Merchant?s Association annual ?Turkey Holidaze? promotion.
A craft who will begin the day at 11 a.m. and run throughout the day as will a Chinese auction.
And should you work up an appetite, that too can be addressed as old-fashioned hamburgers will be offered for sale throughout the day. There will also be activities for children before and after Santa?s visit. As in the past, New Salem merchants will be giving away 40 free turkeys and will also hold toy drawings for youngsters. Children ages 12 and under may be registered at the door on Saturday and names will be drawn later in the afternoon for free prizes.
Winning a turkey has never been easier. Registration to win a turkey will be held the day of the drawing at the door. When you come in you?ll be handed a ticket on which to print your name. All you have to do is sign the back of the ticket, deposit it in the box at the door and wait until the drawing. As in the past, only one turkey winner per household will be allowed. The drawing will follow Santa?s visit at around 2 p.m. The craft show and silent auction will continue after the drawing.
Earlier in the afternoon, Santa will pay his annual visit to New Salem. All area girls and boys are invited to come and visit with Santa at 1:30 p.m. Santa will be handing out treats to all the youngsters who come to see him. Santa?s visit is being sponsored by the New Salem Lions Club.
