Now that the turkey is carved and the shopping matches have toned down, it’s time for getting a little Christmas in our lives.
In Trinity County, there are two opportunities to ramp up the spirit.
Celebrate Christmas with Trinity Peninsula Chamber of Commerce from 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Saturday at Trinity Community Center with a full slate of events, including refreshments, food, shopping and entertainment.
There will be a craft and vendor show all day; Santa will be available for pictures from 2-4 p.m.; there will be s’mores in the park from 4-7 p.m.; Christmas drawings will be judged at 7 p.m.; and the events will culminate with a Christmas parade beginning at 6 p.m. and the traditional tree lighting at 7 p.m.
There will be entertainment at the pavilion next to the center from noon-8 p.m., when awards will be given out.
For information, contact Julia McMichael at (936) 594-3856.
Groveton’s Hometown Country Christmas will be Saturday, Dec. 9, on the Square in Groveton.
Vendors will be set up and ready by 10 a.m. The lighted Christmas parade will follow with lineup at 5 p.m. at the football field parking lot, and the parade will begin at 6 p.m.
Anyone wishing to participate in the parade should contact Veronica Barringer.
