WINNSBORO — Winnsboro residents have had several great options to take their children for Christmas events.

The Midlands STEM Institute held its Winter Production at the Christ Community Center on Congress Street while the Fairfield County Library held a Christmas Tree decorating party last Thursday.

Over the weekend, the Rockton, Rion and Western Railroad Museum ran its Santa Express train as well.

The Winter Production for the STEM Institute featured student performances of several class Christmas songs, and kicked off with a rousing rendition of “Jingle Bell Rock.”

The community turned out in force for the production. Seats for the show were at a premium and many were forced to stand.

Not far from there, the library welcomed area children to come and add their own special touch to a Christmas tree. The kids were treated with the reading of E.J. Sullivan’s “The South Carolina Night Before Christmas” by Chrishonda Gaither.

Once the tree was decorated, the children had another visitor, this time from the North Pole. Santa read the iconic “Twas the Night Before Christmas” before speaking with the children to learn what they wanted for Christmas.

The railroad museum added a twist to their already enjoyable train rides. Rather than going to Santa, Santa came to the children. He rode along with others on the train, leaving behind his sleigh for a more conventional approach to getting around.

Santa will be back again this weekend as well.
