The late opening Friday special in Hamilton Friday celebrated Dr Suess's character, the Grinch.

Kids were able to meet the green guy and the tale of how he grew his heart three sizes was told at Chapter One Book Store. Kids were invited to play fun games at other Hamilton Downtown Association stores.

And, area kids were encouraged to track their good deeds with the Random House sponsored promotion.

Next Friday evening, December 18, downtown Hamilton will have the Festival of Light, marking the winter solstice with warming barrels and free s'mores.
