Christmas Village in Afton, MN

With the sights and sounds of the season just starting, Horton Orthodontics is looking forward to being a part of Afton’s Village Holiday event.  This two day event takes place on December 5th and 6th in Afton, MN.  Friday, the town turns into a romantic winter wonderland, with the village lit by holiday lights, torches, and the smiles of the couples you pass in the streets.  Live music, bonfires, and your choice of either a warm beverage or a chance to sample some local wines all make this into a special evening.

On Saturday, Horton Orthodontics will be there hanging out next to Santa Claus.  There is tons of stuff for the family to do, starting with, of course, meeting Mr. Claus!  There will be crafts, photos, face painting, cookie decorating, and all sorts of Christmas cheer.

Both days also have horse and wagon rides, strolling carolers, and enough cheer to make even Ebenezer laugh.  As important, a few good causes will also be helped during these two days.  Love your Melon is a local nonprofit whose goal is to put a hat and a smile on every child battling cancer in America.  They have an amazing story, which you can read about at   Also, please remember to bring a donation of warm mittens and hats to help the Afton/Lakeland Girl Scouts create their annual Mitten Tree and a nonperishable food item to benefit Valley Outreach.

So please, come stop by and say hi to us!  We will be at the Afton Inn on Saturday December 6th right next to Santa.  We’ll have Christmas treats and just maybe a way for your little ones to make a beard for themselves just like Santa’s!  For more information, please visit Hope to see you there!

Smile on
