The radio stations may already be playing holiday music and the big chain stores may already be covered with seasonal decorations, but in Los Alamos the season officially begins with MainStreet’s Winterfest.

The weekend, which is packed with holiday activities, will be held Dec. 5-6.

It begins with the Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Church’s nativity show, “Creches from around the World,” from 1-7 p.m. Dec. 5 at the church in Los Alamos. The show, which is free and open to everyone, will continue from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Dec. 6.

Following this will be the Dance Arts Los Alamos’ 13th production of “The Nutcracker.”

Shows will be held at 7 p.m. Dec. 5 as well as at 2 p.m. Dec. 6 and Dec. 7 at Duane Smith Auditorium. Tickets are $12 for adults, $10 for students and seniors, and $8 for children age 12 and younger.

The fun continues with the Kiwanis’ Breakfast with Santa from 7-11 a.m. Dec. 6 at the Betty Ehart Senior Center. The breakfast is free with a donation of canned food or money.

Young shoppers, those who are in kindergarten through sixth-grade, can get their shopping done during the Children’s Bazaar, which will be held from 9 a.m.-noon at the Trinity on the Hill Episcopal Church.
