Trapp hosting Christmas event

The “little town” of Trapp is bringing the Christmas spirit to life this year with a new event.

Community volunteers are enacting a live nativity from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday at the former Trapp Elementary School building.

Attendees can then take free pictures with Santa and enjoy cocoa and cookies at the Clark County Fire Department Station 3 in Trapp. Fox’s Grocery is also handing out candy canes.

Angela Warner, a volunteer with the event, said the live nativity scene would also feature some local animals.

Warner said Trapp native Lee-Ann Hampton-Robinson had the idea for the Christmas event after kick-starting the successful Halloween trick-or-treating festivities in Trapp.

“It will be a new event to the area,” Warner said. “And we would love everybody’s support, and we think they will get a blessing out of it.”

Warner said she hopes these events can bring the community together.

“Trapp has always been a close-knit community,” she said. “We have always done stuff for each other, and we’d like for that to continue through the new generations to come.”
