EVART — There was no snow, but the Christmas spirit was all around during Saturday’s annual Christmas in a Small Town celebration in Evart.

Free games, food, crafts, family portraits and more could be found at the Crossroads Community Church and the Evart Depot lawn. The day also featured hayrides, face painting, popcorn, pony rides and a Christmas show.

Families were able to see Santa, as well as interact with members of the roaming Nativity who circulated throughout the crowd. Attendees could talk with Mary and Joseph, a wise man, a shepherd and an angel.

This year was the 10th anniversary of the Christmas Carnival.
