It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in downtown Farmersville, as volunteers with the Farmersville Revitalization Committee hosted their tenth annual Christmas kick-off on Saturday, Nov. 27, in the square downtown.
Youngsters of all ages enjoyed a Christmas craft, a chance to meet Santa Claus, a holiday backdrop for photos, Christmas cookies and hot chocolate and a chance to toast marshmallows for s’mores.
Just prior to the annual tree lighting ceremony, elementary school students, under the direction of teacher Sarah Weatherford, sang several holiday songs. After the performance, Little Mister Irish Days Ryker Payne and Little Miss Irish Days Lennox Sidwell, along with the help from volunteer Mary Jane Schmidt, officially lit the Farmersville Christmas tree for the holidays.
Volunteers give special thanks to Zion Lutheran Church for providing the Christmas cookies, Designer Landscapes for providing the tree for photos with Santa and the Bob Gorman family for providing the fire pit.
Saturday’s event also kicked off this year’s Christmas Enchanted Forest, which will run Fridays and Saturdays through Christmas with self-guided tours from dusk to 8 p.m.
Participants should park at the entrance to the Green Diamond Bike Trail, and golf carts are welcome on the course.
