Christmas in Crockett
Houston County Courier

By Lynda Jones
Managing Editor

Christmas-in-Crockett, is this Saturday, Nov. 20. An event that each year brings to town hoards of visitors is considered the onset of the holiday season in Crockett. Area residents and organiza-tions have been preparing since September. The weekend kicks off Thursday night, Nov. 18 at 6 p.m. with the lighted Christmas parade around the Square. The parade is sponsored by the Houston County Career Women. The Crockett Downtown Beautification Committee wor-ked diligently since Halloween to decorate the Houston County Courthouse lawn so it would be complete for the Christmas-in-Crockett festivities. Nearly 200 are expected to fill the downtown area on Saturday, Nov. 20. There will be something for everyone, from the girlie girls to the outlaws and cowboys. The variety of booths will feature jewelry, quilts, metal arts, candles, food, wood works, arts and crafts and much more. A complete list of the vendors and a map of their locations is included in today’s Houston County Courier, in the Christmas-in-Crockett section. The Davy Crockett Quilt Guild will be located with its sixth annual Quilt Show at the First United Methodist Church Family Life Center from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday. The Community Bell Choir will perform there at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. The Crockett Area Chamber of Commerce sponsors Christmas-in-Crockett. President Jeana Culp announced the Angelina College Singers, the Trinity Valley Jazz Band and the Trinity Valley DixieLand Band will perform (TBA) at the Moosehead Parking Stage. Additionally, there will be horse/carriage rides on Camp Street and an Antique Car Show on 8th Street, Culp reported. Starting Thursday after the parade and continuing all day Friday and all day Saturday, white tigers, a petting zoo and children’s activities will be located at the First United Methodist Church. At Brewer Park, a variety of entertainment is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The Brewer Park line-up includes Pastor Regie Gregory, 10-11 a.m.; Josh Bobbitt and Band, 11 a.m. - 12 p.m.; Edge Dance Company, 12-1 p.m.; Truly God’s Cowboy Country Church Band, 1-2 p.m. Don’t forget to carry along your Courier Christmas-in-Crockett special section with the map so you can enjoy all your favorite events.
