The Martinsburg-Berkeley County Parks and Recreation Department propelled into the Holiday season with their exciting Operation North Pole event held on December 2nd at the Berkeley 2000 Recreation Center. Park staff and community members enjoyed the carefully planned activities and crafts that were offered.

From inflatables and lifesize board games to Selfies with Santa and Mrs. Claus’ Café with free hot cocoa, cider, and donuts, the center was packed with fun for everyone. One of the most popular make-and-take stations was the advent garland craft where event goers designed a chain link garland with a countdown to Christmas.

With 208 registrants, the event was extremely successful. MBCPR is grateful for its staff that worked diligently to create an event that evoked the true spirit of the season for all the children and families who participated and will continue to offer these exciting recreational experiences in the future.
