West Carrollton’s annual Holiday Festival is set for Saturday and includes an event for those with special needs.

The festival, sponsored by the City Beautiful Commission, will be from 4 to 6 p.m. at the West Carrollton Civic Center, 300 E. Central Ave.

Before the event a special Sensory-Friendly Santa photo opportunity will provide the chance for children with special needs, and their families, to enjoy a private photo session without all the loud noises and large crowds.

Spots are limited between 2:45-3:45 p.m., and reservations are required. Register online at https://www.westcarrollton.org/sensitive-santa-photo-request/ or call (937) 859-5182.

The festival will feature an opportunity for free photos with Santa Claus, horse-drawn wagon rides, a candy cane hunt, and musical performances by local high school choirs.

It concludes with the annual tree lighting ceremony at 6 p.m. and winners of the Friday Gingerbread House Decorating Contest will be on display.
