Well, it’s that wonderful time of year when we celebrate the Festival of Lights in Newton, Texas. Folks from all over Texas stop in to visit Newton and see the “tree-mendous” Christmas display. The official date is Saturday, November 30, 2019.
The Lighted Christmas Parade will begin at 6 p.m. on the courthouse square in Newton. Vendors are welcome and will be located on the square at the center of the excitement. Booths are just $20 and it is certain to be a grand ole time. If you are interested in singing or entertaining in any way, please call Melanie Smith Bowman at 409-594-3407 for details.
Of course the Christmas Trains will be running at the festival. The train takes its riders through a winter wonderland of light and displays around Caney Creek Park. Train tickets are just $4 for ages 3 and up. The trains will be running every weekend until Christmas and whole train rentals are available too! Call 409-379-5061 for more details.
