Hometown Christmas In Defuniak Springs

By  | 

Defuniak Springs- Black Friday's shopping madness may be over, but it sure kicked off the holiday shopping season.

Hundreds of people showed up to take part in Walton County's Hometown Christmas.

"Well, I'm here to do some shopping. My wife's already been doing some shopping. I hope I can get out of here without spending too much money today. This is absolutely fantastic here today,” said the mayor of Defuniak Springs.

Jewelry, christmas trees, and even some fashion items could be found all over the Walton County Fairgrounds on Saturday.

County Commissioner Sara Comander helped organize the event and she says its a way of bringing people in the community together.

"A lot of folks come home for the holidays. They come home for Thanksgiving and this is where they see old friends and good friends. It's a wonderful activity," said Comander.

Vendors from all over set up to sell one of a kind gifts for every taste.

Visitors didn't just come from Defuniak Springs. There were many people from out of state including one man all the way from the North Pole...Santa Claus himself.

Hometown Christmas was sponsored by the Defuniak Business and Professional Association.
