Fall fun is giving way to thoughts of the holidays at Down on the Farm in Rainsville, Ala.

Starting Saturday, Nov. 24, Santa's Village will be open weekends through Dec. 16.

Families can have photos made with Santa, play the Elf-a-Bet game, sample sweet treats, compose letters for Santa, have their face painted, make ornaments and decorate a cookie or cupcake.

Hours are 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturdays, noon-4 p.m. Sundays (all times Central). Admission is $10, and photos cost $5 extra.

The Christmas tree farm, where families can choose and cut their own Frasier fir, or purchase one already cut, is open daily through Dec. 23. Live wreaths and garlands also are available, along with a Christmas gift shop. Tree and greenery prices vary.
