—The spirit of Christmas and the holiday season was overwhelmingly abundant in Clara City over the weekend, as the community came together to hold its annual Clara City Christmas Kickoff event downtown.
Festivities kicked off with a pancake and french toast supper by the Clara City Lion's Club at MACCRAY High School, followed by crafts, treats and Santa Claus at the Clara City Public Library.
Friends gathered for coffee and cookies at the Bethany Church Hub to warm up before heading out to the sidewalks running down Main Street for the Holiday Parade.
The weekend capped off with the Clara City Lion's Club tree sale at Almich's Market on Saturday.
