Saturday started out rainy and dreary but by afternoon the rain had left us and it was warm. This was good because the annual Bethesda's Winter Wonderland was from 1pm to 4pm.
At the wonderland there was ice carving, face painting, visiting with Santa (which was really popular). There was also food you could by from Dog Haus and the Red Bandana Bakery.
Singing was provided by various groups throughout the afternoon on a stage at Norfolk and St. Elmo avenues. I believe the group in the photo was from Walter Johnson High School.
Norfolk Avenue was closed between St. Elmo Avenue and Del Ray Avenue, giving people plenty of space to mill around and enjoy the sights and sounds.
