For me and so many others, the holidays are so special because they remain a family affair. The Hendricks County Convention and Visitors Bureau hopes to tap into that spirit as we launch our HollyDays holiday campaign tomorrow. Yes, Holly Hendricks is back, but we also will introduce you to her family this year. Husband, Kris, their boys, Nick and Jack, and daughter, Noel will help us liven up the Hendricks County HollyDays season especially through a series of videos we have planned featuring many holiday traditions. We started celebrating the season with Holly's family this past weekend by videotaping their trip to Wilbur’s Lincolnwood Toy Store. Holly’s family is absolutely awesome, and we all had so much fun! I know you will adore them just like I do. Oh, and if you haven’t been to Wilbur's Lincolnwood Toy Store in Brownsburg, I highly recommend it. They have cool wooden toys that bring me back to the days when I was a kid along with high-tech toys that I would enjoy playing with today. The other five HollyDays videos will highlight shopping at Metropolis Mall, finding cookie recipes along the Cookie Trail, picking out your Christmas Tree at Evans Whispering Pines Christmas Tree Farm, getting together with the girls at Nomad Yarns and Gallery on the Square, and fun indoor activities for the kids at The Crag Rock Climbing Facility. You can follow along with these weekly video releases here. Another fun holiday activity that we are bringing back for the second year is our holiday Cookie Trail. The trail includes 13 locations including unique shops, restaurants, galleries and other locally owned businesses in Hendricks County. At each stop on the Cookie Trail, you can collect the cookie code to enter online or scan a QR code with your smart phone to receive the recipe. Recipes have been submitted by local celebrities like U.S. gymnast Bridget Sloan, FOX-59 news anchor Angela Ganote, NHRA racer Larry Dixon, and many more. To find a list of Cookie Trail locations, go here. Make sure you also follow us on our Facebook page to download exclusive HollyDays coupons, stay up-to-date on fun events, and learn more about what there is to do in Hendricks County as well as a few other holiday surprises.
