An Old Fashioned Christmas Festival in Katy Texas

An Old Fashioned Christmas Festival in Katy Texas

On Saturday December 15, 2011 an Old Fashioned Christmas Festival is being sponsored by Katy Market Days and this is the third annual celebration. The Festival will be held from 10:00 A.M. until 5:00 P.M. on Avenue B in Old Town Katy as Avenue B is essentially where a many of the store are located or are close by in Old Katy Texas.

Snow at festival 2011

The pageant will feature Santa Claus and real snow arriving at right around noon time. I attended last year and the real snow was there for ll to enjoy. In addition, there will be lots of delicious food available for purchase and excellent local entertainment.  Local small business will be open with numerous potential gift ideas for Christmas shoppers. The festivities will feature things such as arts & crafts, jewelry, antiques, all kinds of different gifts, hot cocoa and coffee.  

The event is free to attend but all are requested to bring donations of canned goods which will be given to the Food Bank at Katy Christian Ministries (KCM). I have previously written blogs about KCM itself, their food bank and last year’s festival. The KCM food bank feed in excess of 6,800 families during the year 2011 and the total will be higher in 2012.

Vendors at Festival 2011

Katy Market days were established in 2001 and has been a growing endeavor ever since then. Katy Market Days is held on the third Saturday of every month between 2 ND Street and Avenue B. Most of the local vendors with shops in Old Katy participate in the monthly Katy Market Days event. Each month during any given  year, the merchants pick a new theme. I also have written several previous blogs about Katy Market days.

I am writing about this event early this year so folks can plan in advance to attend. As I said above I went last year to this festival and many residents also took advantage of the various opportunities and had fun.
