A successful holiday in downtown Hastings
Large crowds came to downtown Hastings on Saturday for the first "Downtown Holiday." Among the main attractions were free rides on a sleigh pulled by reindeer.
Merchants up and down the streets in downtown Hastings had sales and carolers walked through the streets singing carols.
A gingerbread decorating contest was held at one business and free gift wrapping was offered throughout downtown.
The Downtown Business Association organized and promoted the event.
