On Saturday, Dec. 4, "A Downtown Christmas" presented by Engelbrecht Enterprises will be held in downtown Evansville, Indiana.

The Downtown Evansville Economic Improvement District (EID) hosts the annual event on Main Street between 2nd and 4th Streets.

Organizers say the Christmas-themed event will include something for the whole family.

"We're going to have Santa here of course, we'll have a live reindeer - Comet the reindeer. We'll have pony rides, Christmas crafts, free roasted nut samples. Really just everything packaged up into one," said Adam Trinkel with the Downtown Evansville EID. "We wanted to create an experience for families to come downtown and just enjoy themselves and do a bunch of free activities."

"We're having a Ferris wheel as well," Trinkel added.

The event will kick off at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, and run until 4:00 p.m.

It was scheduled to take place around the same time last year but was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Wow!!!! It's cold!!!! After a trace of snow in Evansville and some higher amounts to the south, we're waking up to temperatures in the mid to upper teens across the Tri-State. Thankfully, road crews did a fantastic job treating the roads to keep conditions from getting slick. However, the northerly winds gusting as high as 15 to 20 mph has dropped wind chill values into the single digits and even below zero in our western communities. There won't be much of an improvement in temperatures this afternoon. With the strong northerly wind flow and dry skies our highs will only reach the mid to upper 20s. Winds will stay quite breezy keeping the wind chill factor in place through the day.
