Robert the Reindeer will highlight Christmas in the Wilds

Robert the Reindeer will highlight Christmas in the Wilds

He is 43 feet long and stands 18 feet tall! Robert the Reindeer is helium filled and will make his first appearance in the region at the Christmas in the Wilds parade on Saturday, December 12 in Emporium.

Cameron County Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Tina Johns Lorson says the Macy style balloon will float high above the 24 balloon handlers. “The Emporium branch office of the Mountain Laurel Federal Credit Union is sponsoring the mammoth balloon! The chamber hopes this addition will line the street with people wanting to see a Macy style balloon without the hassles of traveling to New York City.” Anyone wishing to participate as a balloon handler is asked to contact the Mountain Laurel Federal Credit Union or chamber office.

Christmas in the Wilds begins Friday night with the Antique Seekers tour of homes. Saturday morning Santa Claus will have breakfast with children at the Emporium Volunteer Fire Department. Santa has promised to bring Dasher and Dancer with him. They will pose for pictures on Fourth Street in the vacant lot near the chamber office. Inflation of Robert the Reindeer will begin at 11 Saturday morning at the former Fourth Street School. The parade will step off at noon and businesses in Emporium will offer craft projects for children from noon to 3.

Inside the chamber Jakobs Ladder will perform, along with demonstrations from several artists. Outside several vendors will sell items and also have hot drinks and food available while the Emporium Senior Center will host its annual craft sale. Johns Lorson says the events will provide shoppers the opportunity to see what unique gift items can be found in Cameron County.
