The 20th Benton Christmas on the Square was held Dec. 7 at the Heritage Village Square on Sibley Street in Benton.
The annual festival is a one-day outdoor event free to the public, offering a wide variety of entertainment and activities for all ages: 5K walk/run, rides, bounce houses, crafts for the kids, parish-wide art contest, and live entertainment on two stages. There were 85-plus vendor spaces filled with handmade items and food choices.
