BRUNSWICK, Ohio – Mother Nature must have approved of holding Christmas in July as Santa stopped at the Brunswick Farmers Market Sunday to a beautiful, sunny day.

Santa told the children he talked to that he was on his way back from his vacation and heading to the North Pole to begin preparing for the December 25 holiday. While some children didn’t seem too eager to interact, Santa brought along extra jingle bells to break the ice. He handed a string of bells together and the kids’ – all of whom seemed to know the words to the appropriate songs – played along.

Santa advised the children to begin making their wish lists in case he didn’t remember exactly what they wanted. He asked “Do you leave me cookies?” And if the answer was yes, he said to leave the list with the cookies and he’d try his best to fulfill their wishes.

Musician, Ken Uram got right into the spirit of things as he played Christmas music throughout the afternoon in the big red barn where Santa was headquartered.

Danimal the Clown, was busy making balloon creations for the children who got there early for Santa’s noon arrival. There were some very unusual creations being carried around the farm.

Members of the Junior National Honor Society continued helping out the Brunswick Area Historical Society during the markets this year and worked hard to be sure all the visitors were having a merry Christmas. You can learn more about the events at brunswickhistory.com

The weekly farmers market will be back to “normal” for a few weeks until the Touch a Truck and children’s costume parade take place on Aug. 4 at Heritage Farm, 4613 Laurel Road.
