Christmas Celebration Set for Saturday

The downtown Lufkin Christmas celebration is set for Saturday. The fun starts at 9:00 a.m. and will last all day.

The annual Christmas parade starts at 3:00 p.m., followed by the lighting of the courthouse at 6:00 p.m. Saturday evening. There'll be all kinds of arts and crafts for the kids, singing, and plenty of other holiday festivities.

Vendor booths will be set up for a little holiday shopping and downtown business owners will decorate their stores for the occasion. The event is free, and everyone is invited.

The Salvation Army bell ringers will also be part of this year's celebration.
