You had me at ‘hot cocoa’

The Depot Winter Arts Festival today includes free entry to all museums and art vendors; a fashion show of party gowns; a reading of “The Polar Express” and, yes, hot cocoa.

If that isn’t enough — we don’t know how it wouldn’t be — Santa makes an appearance from noon to 4 p.m. The festival is from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Depot and is free and open to the public.

Bring a pair of new mittens to decorate the mitten tree. Donations will be given to CHUM.

There will be live performances by Tribal Alchemie, Youth Theatre, Dream Dance Academy and more.
