Holiday events are still in full swing, but this weekend isn’t quite so packed as last weekend — meaning we totally have an excuse to stay in and watch Hallmark movies, right? If you do want to leave the couch this weekend, read on for a few fun events happening in Marysville.

REMINDER: We’re also hosting a Christmas lights competition over on our Facebook page! Message us your pics for a chance to win a $50 gift card to The Half Pint.

Care Train Auction at Ace Hardware
The Union County Care Train has been helping families in need during the holidays for over 30 years. Their annual auction will take place this Saturday, so head out to Ace Hardware to support a great local organization.

Care Train Concert at Marysville High School
As part of the festivities, the Cardinal Health Orchestra and Marysville High School Symphonic Choir will be performing classic Christmas carols. The concert is free to attend, but they will be accepting donations at the door, with Cardinal Health matching the total amount raised!

Lambert Jewelers is hosting a photoshoot with Santa this Saturday afternoon. Photos are free and there will also be giveaways and refreshments.

Merrysville at Marysville Public Library
Celebrate the holidays at the Marysville Public Library with crafts, cookie decorating, a book sale and more this Saturday. Looks like Santa will be making an appearance too!
