About Winter Wonderland

The Pulaski County Chamber of Commerce sponsored its first Winter Wonderland on a Monday evening, Dec. 22, 2003. Planned by the Chamber's retail committee, the event featured last-minute Christmas shopping, craft booths, carriage rides, hot chocolate and desserts at downtown restaurants, photos with Santa and holiday caroling. The purpose was to provide a family-friendly event to create hometown memories.
