A fun European-style holiday festival is coming to Jim Thorpe this Saturday for the first time and those who misbehave should be weary of Krampus.

Members of the Carbon Chamber were busy today preparing for the inaugural Black Forest Krampusnacht at Kemmerer Park. In German folklore Saint Nicholas rewards nice children by leaving them presents, but Krampus, on the other hand, punishes the bad children. Organizers say Krampus festivals are becoming more popular in the U.S. and Kemmerer Park is the perfect location for it.

"Expect to see a variety of German-inspired Krampus characters from German folklore. They can expect kids crafts. We have live music from The Villagers, which is a polka band. We have a beer & wine garden, craft vendors, and food vendors as well."

The event runs from 11am to 4pm this Saturday. For more information, visit the events page on the chamber's website.
