While you're out shopping Saturday in Nacogdoches, you can take part in this weekend's Nine Flags festivities. Downtown merchants will offer spicy holiday drinks on Saturday from 11:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.
It's the Wassail Festival. Shoppers are given a cup of holiday cheer. To make it even more fun, there's a contest, and you're the judge. A list of participants can be picked up at the Visitor's Center.
The downtown Christmas lights are shining. Now, the Nine Flags Festival wants to see what you can do.
Festival organizers are offering $100 first place prize money to both the homeowner and business owner who has the prettiest lights. Second and third place awards will also be presented.
Entry forms are available at the Visitor's Center. The deadline is December 9th. Judging will take place on the 12th.
