Storybook Holiday Express 2020

Every year, the city of Frostburg is transformed into a holiday winter wonderland as local organizations come together to present Frostburg’s Storybook Holiday, a festive, community celebration through children’s literature. This year, the Children’s Literature Centre is putting a magical twist on the original Storybook Holiday with Storybook Holiday Express! 

Storybook Holiday Express will take place on Saturday, Dec. 5, and Sunday, Dec. 6, and will include in-person and virtual events, including to-go craft/STEM bags; a virtual Elf Olympics; a virtual reading from Caralyn Buehner, author of “Snowmen at Night,” and a special appearance by illustrator Mark Buehner; and Deck the Meters – a chance for businesses, groups or individuals to decorate a city meter for the holidays.

While supplies last, to-go craft/STEM bags can be picked up via drive-through at Mountain Ridge High School (bus lot closest to Sheetz) on Saturday, Dec. 5, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and Sunday, Dec. 6, from 1 to 3 p.m. Due to COVID, masks are required. Only cars will receive craft/STEM bags for children. No walk-ins are allowed. 

Other activities include video messages (Welcome to Storybook Holiday Express, Frostburg Fire and Police Departments and Special Storybook Holiday Friends), a holiday hero announcement and holiday read-alouds.

And be sure to visit Frostburg during December to enjoy shop and restaurant specials, as well as free parking!
