Things kick off tonight with a new event called "Reindeer Games." Groups of people will go on a clue-based race across the city. Any group that wants to get in on the games should meet at the Sliding Hill to receive instructions. Sprague says a trophy will be given out to the winning group.

"I'm hoping that everyone will come down and support it, even if they're not going to participate, but come watch because it will be fun, " she says.

Crafts and Music are two of the big themes for Saturday. The live music begins at 11 a.m. Horse Face. At 12:30 p.m. local favorite Ronnie Setniker and family will perform some fun polka music. The Mesabi East Jazz Choir, A Touch of Class, and The Frichek's will also be playing throughout the day.

"A wide mixture of music," Sprague says.
