Oakdale’s annual Cowboy Christmas was hosted on Saturday, Nov. 30 inside and outside the Oakdale Community Center with a variety of Western-themed vendors, arts, crafts, food and more. Booths were open Friday night and Saturday. Marg Jackson/The Leader

Santa stopped by, there was plenty of food and beverages and more Western-themed booths than you could imagine, hosted at the Gene Bianchi Community Center over the weekend.

Booths inside set up shop on Friday, Nov. 29 and there were booths both inside and outside in the plaza that were open for business on Saturday, Nov. 30.

Children had the chance to take a photo with Santa and share some Christmas wishes, while parents had the opportunity to peruse the booths and find some unique holiday gifts.

Many of the vendors outside had items other than cowboy-related but the majority of booths at the annual Cowboy Christmas hosted by the Oakdale Cowboy Museum gave a nod to the city’s Western heritage.

Rainy, windy weather chased some vendors away early on Saturday but the event overall saw another successful year.
