CASS, W.Va. — Main Street of Cass in Pocahontas County will be aglow Dec. 1 through 31, 2015 as the community decorates the street and a town Christmas tree for the holidays.
“This is the first year we’ve decorated the whole town,” said Scott Fortney, superintendent of Cass Scenic Railroad State Park. “The two-story company houses and picket fences are a great backdrop for lights and decorations.”
Main Street will be lighted every evening Dec. 1 through 31. The official lighting of the town tree will occur Dec. 11 at 5:30 p.m. with Santa helping with the festivities. The tree is located beside the Company Store. Children visiting with Santa will receive fruit and candy. The event is free and open to the public.
Dec.11-12 is Christmas at Cass weekend with the Company Store open for shopping. A holiday bazaar hosted by the Last Run Restaurant features baked goods, sweet breads, fruitcake jams and jellies by the Blue Roof Caters. The Pocahontas County Artisan Co-op will be at the Company Store with West Virginia handmade and crafted gifts.
Breakfast with Santa is planned for Dec. 12 at the Cass Community Center from 8 a.m. until noon. Breakfast is $7 per person for pancakes, bacon, sausage, mixed fruit, juice, mike and coffee. The proceeds benefit the Green Bank Elementary and Middle School 4th grade class Washington, D.C. trip. Parents are encouraged to bring a camera for photo opportunities with Santa.
