FUNKSTOWN - Despite inclement weather Friday, the annual Olde Tyme Christmas in Funkstown went off without a hitch, Rich Gaver, the event's co-chairman, told the Funkstown Mayor and Town Council on Monday.
Gaver said 450 to 500 people passed through the Funkstown Town Hall Friday between 6 and 9 p.m. to participate in the activities held there, which he said was a surprising turnout.
He said more than 70 people took guided wagon rides through the town while snow fell steadily throughout the evening. A parade that was scheduled to run through the town that night did not happen, Gaver said, adding that it was "probably a good thing it didn't."
Gaver said the event's dinner, sponsored by the Funkstown Fire Co., sold out. About 35 children got their faces painted and the cookies left over from the children's event were donated to the town's firefighters, he said.
