La Grange will mark the start of the holiday season on Thursday with the 13th Annual Schmeckenfest.
Local business owners and community leaders will have over 20 different types of wassail, or hot cider, available to taste and vote on. The winner of the wassail competition will be named Schmeckenmeister until the next festival.
Other planned activities include music, treats from local nonprofit organizations, a scavenger hunt, and a window decorating contest.
