Things to Do in December 2018

Family-fun in the Roundtopolis

It’s December in the Roundtopolis™, which means there are plenty of things to do, so  go! go! go! for some ho! ho! ho! The a nip in the air means everyone’s nose is as red as Rudolph’s. Children’s eyes are twinkling as brightly as the Christmas lights that are adorning town squares throughout the region. Joy is hanging in the air like mistletoe over the doorways. Get out. Get about. Explore the back roads and enjoy all that this special season in the Roundtopolis™ has to offer.
