Lighted parade, photos with Santa, Jingle Jog, fireworks, s'mores and more highlight annual Fenton Regional Chamber of Commerce event.
Fenton’s Jinglefest on Saturday drew people from near and far, and the balmy (for December) weather certainly didn’t decrease attendance. Cheryl Jarding, of Rapid City, South Dakota, who was visiting Lisa DeLavergne, of Fenton, made Jinglefest part of her trip. The two ran the 5K Jingle Jog together, with Jarding winning her age group and DeLavergne taking fourth in hers.
