The Holiday Fair held annually at the Deer Park Community Center is another community function that North Country 4-H participates in. This year, John Olson of Elk River played the part of Santa Claus for the 4th year. Although Santa Claus is a fictional figure, everyone including the oldest people, treat Santa Claus with dignity and respect.

The Christmas Holiday season has officially begun with the Holiday Fair of 2009 (December 5) featured in this 10 minute 7 second video. John Olson of Elk River is this year's Santa, his second year at Deer Park. Santa takes orders from those who desire electronics from the older, savy youngsters to those that are so young they really don't know what to make of this strange looking guy in red.
A high-speed internet connection is recommended for viewing.
