Star City Buzz: Holiday fun in Lincoln this weekend

By  | 

LINCOLN, Neb. -- In the fall, JK's Pumpkin Patch pulls out all the stops for Halloween, but October doesn't last forever.

When the temperature drops and snow falls, the business takes on a whole different look.

It transforms from a pumpkin patch to a Winter Wonderland-- complete with Santa's sleigh, face painting, crafts and the big guy himself.

JK's Winter Wonderland is inside a heated barn just North of Lincoln. No matter the weather, families can grab some frosted sugar cookies and a hot drink to get into the holiday spirit.

For just $10 per child, families can write a letter to Santa, take a picture with Santa and get a CD with their photos.

"They get to do an ornament craft as a family and enjoy some cookies and cider," said Owner Josh Kadavy. "It's just a wonderful time for families to come in and interact."

The Winter Wonderland is in its third year, but owners hope to keep it going for years to come.

"This is one of those things we started, and we're going to continue to make that a tradition for families," said Kadavy.

JK's Winter Wonderland is open from 11:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays through December 18th.
