The event offered holiday crafts and activities, entertainment, rides on the Kandy Kane Xpress train and a tree lighting ceremony. The event also accepted donations of toiletry items for The Dane Foundation, which supports individuals with disabilities, single mothers and senior citizens; and items for Shoeboxes for Soldiers, which sends care boxes to soldiers stationed abroad, according to event officials. In addition, decorated miniature trees donated by area residents were auctioned off at the Kandy Kane Festival.
