Haunted tours to Holiday parade; WCC announces Fall & Winter events

Kiddie train, food trucks, cornhole games, parade, Santa Claus, face painting, snow, free T-shirts, and a possible ghost or two. We are lining up all this stuff and more for our fall and winter chamber event schedule.

Party Under the Bridge, Thursday, Oct. 21, sponsored by Paul and Cindy Webb. We are adding free train rides for kids plus the food trucks, a DJ, and free T-shirts. The cornhole game is still in the box, but not for long. The Party Under the Bridge will be from 5 to 8 pm at Dinosaur Park. Bring your own beer or wine if you want.

The Haunted Tour led by 6th Realm Paranormal, Friday and Saturday, Oct. 29 and 30. We soon will start signing up those wanting to go on the tour. Watch for notices because spots will fill fast. Because of the success last year, we are adding a second night and plan to make this an annual event.


Wharton Chamber Christmas Holiday Parade, Nov. 23. The parade theme will be “Christmas in Toyland.” More to come, sign up for floats and vendors soon.

Snow on the Square, Friday, Dec. 17. Last time, we added a “refresh” that stops the snow from getting too hard. We are going to do that again, but actually enlarge the whole area of snow. Event Underwriter is Roberson Air Conditioning, with gold sponsorships from JM Eagle, Exelon Generation, and Mid-Coast Title Co. Inc.

We are optimistic that COVID numbers will be such that we can carry on as planned. We want to wrap our arms around everyone that has been impacted by this long ordeal.


More to come.

Thank you. Thank you to all of our sponsors and volunteers. “Players win games, teams win championships.”
