APPLETON, Wis. (WBAY) - Appleton Downtown is spreading holiday magic to your home.

Holiday Fun Fest is typically held at the City Center. Due to COVID-19, it’s not an option this year.

Instead, Appleton Downtown, Inc is giving families the opportunity to create that magic at home with Holiday Fun Fest Kits.

Two-hundred kits were made available, but they’ve all been claimed. No more are available for registration.

Pickup is on Saturday, Dec. 5, from 10 a.m. - noon, at the Fox Cities Exhibition Center on S. Elm. Registered families just need to give a name to a volunteer who will come out to the car.

Costumed characters, including Frosty the Snowman, will wave to children.

Families can also sign up for virtual visits with Santa Claus at

“It’s a five minute slot where you get to chat with Santa one on one through the computer. We wanted kids to still have a chance to see the big guy himself and tell him their wishes and hopes for this holiday season,” says Lynn Hardy, Marketing Director.
