Mingle with Kringle is meant for true believers – believers in sugar plums and reindeer and elves, but most of all believers in Santa Claus.

The Oconee Cultural Arts Foundation hosted its annual Mingle w/Kringle Saturday Dec. 14 at Rocket Hall on School Street in downtown Watkinsville. There were two sessions – one starting at 9:30 a.m. and one starting at 12:30 p.m. – each lasting about two hours. Admission to the event was a suggested donation of a child’s toy or $2 or free. Toys and all donations will be presented to Oconee Resource Council. There were crafts, entertainment, story time, a picture with Santa and an unbelievable children’s show.
