Parents & Kids Loved our Event

We’d like to thank everyone who came out early in December for our Drive-Thru Candy Cane Hunt with Santa. It wasn’t what we normally do but Meghan Friedland of Macaroni Kid Danbury, sure made it fun and COVID-19 safe.

We were a bit nervous as we monitored the weather forecast for that day, the weatherman forecasted rain and temperatures in the high 40s to low 50s.

I, myself, was not looking forward to a rainy event. The weather turned out to be a balmy 60 degrees with sunshine! We could not have asked for better weather for our December 13th event. At one point I heard the “Dancing Elf” say that she was getting a bit sweaty dancing around in her winter costume.

Sponsors & Volunteers

Thank you to our sponsors; Immanuel Lutheran School in Danbury, with the support from Savings Bank of Danbury, Daily Fare in Bethel, and our volunteers, our two traffic control High School Students who came dressed to the nines in their spectacular holiday suits, the Grinch, Cindy Lou Who, the Elf on the Shelf, Mrs. Claus and most especially Santa! The “Dancing Elf” that dispensed the goodies as well as Christmas cheer had a great time! I heard it on good authority that the Dancing Elf had to go home and take a nap from all that fun and good cheer!

We’ve had some photos come in from the Drive-Thru and Scavenger Hunt already. We’re looking forward to sharing some more photos as soon as they are available.

Furthermore, we are very happy to announce that Macaroni Kid Danbury is donating $800 from the proceeds of the Candy Cane Hunt and Drive Thru with Santa Fundraiser. We truly appreciate all the hard work and support of Meghan Friedland and Macaroni Kid.

The Fun continues with a family oriented scavenger hunt in Tarrywile Park. Please see the details, clues and map by going to the link below. Don’t forget to post your photos to #mkDanburyCandyCaneHunt and please also tag @Tarrywile.Park.and.Mansion and @MacKidDanbury
