The calendar is full of holiday events planned for Webster City this weekend. From kids crafts to cookies and holiday treats to the music of the season, there are plenty of opportunities for area residents to catch a little Christmas spirit.

Saturday morning, the annual Asbury United Methodist Women's Cookie Walk will be held in the church parlors beginning at 9 a.m. For $15, those participating can fill a large box with holiday treats. Proceeds from the event go to benefit the church's mission projects.

Children can enjoy Breakfast with Santa from 8 to 10 a.m. at Riverview Early Childhood Center.
