CROCKETT – It might have been drizzling and chilly, but that didn’t stop vendors, volunteers, or visitors from attending the 41st Annual Christmas in Crockett that took place on Nov. 19.

Held the Saturday before Thanksgiving since 1981, this year’s Christmas in Crockett saw close to three hundred vendors selling everything from home décor, fragrances, clothing, jewelry, and homemade canned delicacies, to a petting zoo and a mini train to entertain the kids and raffles for the adults. And, of course, food vendors offered almost any kind of cuisine you could want. One event attendee lamented, “I spent $120 on food,” then brightly added, “but it sure was good.”

The inclement weather also boosted downtown businesses when visitors seeking a brief respite from the weather found warmth and shelter inside the brick-and-mortar structures.

The Chamber also held a Christmas Cookie Competition in conjunction with Christmas in Crockett. Bakers submitted decorated and holiday cookies in three age categories.

First-place winners in two of the categories were Maggie Franklin, Britt McDaniel, Savanah Schmal and Melissa Ledbetter.
