The magical festivities of Christmas Comes to Kenai 'Just Believe' 2010 were proof of the pride we have in our community and the success you can achieve when we all network our recourses together.
Friday was another great day of Christmas Comes to Kenai festivities. This 30-plus year tradition in Kenai has been a success year after year thanks to our dedicated community members.

Snow arrived just in time for one more run, snowmachine run that is!

It was a funfilled event for both adults and children.
