Last month, it was a haunted house. In less than a week, it will be a Christmas Playhouse. Alton's Haskell House is going to be decorated in the spirit of Christmas for this Saturday's event that will have Santa greeting kids of all ages from noon-2pm.

Alton Park & Recreation's Rhonda Lewis says there will be plenty of activities.

Lewis comments
