Santa visits, toy drives next week in Crosby

The Crosby-Huffman Chamber of Commerce’s Kid’s Festival combines with the Turner Chevrolet Monster Truck Toy Drive and ATV Lights Christmas Parade on December 8 parading from the Crosby Middle School to the Crosby Rodeo Fairgrounds to make a new, more decorative, longer, more dark parade.

CROSBY– Next week a bevy of special holiday display events begin in unincorporated Harris County.

One of the most exciting developments is that a large motorcade assembles at the parking lot of Crosby Middle School on Dec. 8 to be on parade at 6:00 p.m., stopping traffic on FM 2100 and marching to the Crosby Fairgrounds where a Children’s Festival is to be ongoing from 3:00 p.m.

The Children’s Festival offers photos with Santa, with traditional hotdogs and treats. On hand will be vendors with great gift ideas and lots of kids’ fun enjoyment. Last year there were rides and bounce houses with a petting zoo.

Turner Chevrolet has teamed with Clothe-A-Child Program to add to the chamber parade a special Toy Drive and 4X4 Parade with special guests Santa and friends. The Toy Drive and Clothe A Child are hoping to provide toys and clothes to those in need this year. The Toy Drives conclude with the parade on Dec. 8.

HIGHLANDS – A mainstay tradition for the area is the annual park tree lighting and Santa’s early visit brought in by the Highlands Volunteer Fire Dept. on a fire truck.

The Jolly Ole’ Elf appears Dec. 4 at 6:00 p.m. and the community comes out to chat and have the kids tell him what they want. Meanwhile, folks can get photos of kids rapping with Santa.
