Christmas at Chilhowee ParkPresented by Comcast, the winter wonderland at Chilhowee Park features musical performances, free pictures with Santa Claus, hot cocoa and more for children of all ages.

Actor/singer Brandon Gibson will kick off the festivities with a selection of Christmas songs. Gibson, who has been acting on East Tennessee stages for several years, is an accomplished vocalist who will sing prior to Santa's arrival via train.

In addition to hot cocoa and marshmallow roasting, Austin-East High School's Culinary Arts Department will supply free goodies in Mrs. Claus' bakeshop. The students will also help kids to decorate one of three gingerbread houses on display.
