5-starwonderful traditional event
Trees decorated to the themes of children's storybooks. Get a list of the featured books ahead of time and kids will find their favorite stories creatively reflected on tree decor.
2-starNot Really For Children
We went over there some time ago, very small place with few things for children, rather it's local residents who are more interested in the town's literature history.
