SOUTH POINT –– The second annual South Point Christmas Extravaganza, sponsored by People for the Point and South Point Schools, is taking place from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday at South Point High School and will feature numerous Christmas festivities.

“This is a good way for us to work with the schools and work with the community,” Chris Smith, president of People for the Point, said. “Last year was the first year, and it turned out real good. This year, we’re trying to grow it and hopefully it will be bigger and better. We’re looking forward to a good crowd.”

Tickets for pancakes are $5 in advance, which can be purchased at Slack and Wallace Funeral Home, Robin Fowler State Farm, Allman’s Giovanni’s or South Point High School.
