Vernal City and V6 Media have teamed up to host Santa and the community for a drive-in style event on Wednesday, December 9th at 5:30 pm in the parking lot of the Uintah Conference Center in Vernal. Santa will kick off the free event by reading Christmas stories, followed by a showing of the animated Christmas classic Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer. Both the Christmas stories and the movie will be be shown on a projection screen with sound broadcast on a FM radio frequency, allowing attendees to safely participate from the warmth of their vehicles. For those unable to attend in person, Channel V6 will provide a live stream of Santa reading the Christmas stories. A link to the live stream will be available at channelv6.com. Due to licensing restrictions, the movie will not be available on the live stream.
Event organizers stated that they hope this free event will help to brighten the holiday season for children and families throughout the area.
