We're sending Francie Aufdemorte to shoot the Festival tonight, which also runs through tomorrow. The event is free, and it's a great chance for the kids to sit on Santa's lap. Along with Christmas booths, the Draper Commmunity Foundation arranged an excellent performance lineup for tonight as well. Click here to see Francie's other work.
