Christmas for kids endures

The communities in My Coastal World continue struggling with the effects of Hurricane Harvey but businesses, cities’ staff and organizations are persevering to find the resources and time to hold holiday events enjoyed by young and old.

The first weekend of December was filled with tree lightings, parades and festivals. Children visited Santa as he appeared throughout the area. Games, making ornaments, and fireworks brought smiles to young faces.

More holiday experiences are planned this coming weekend beginning Thursday, December 14, in Fulton Park for an Old Fashion Christmas. Ingleside Volunteer Fire Department has made arrangements for Santa to come for breakfast. Ingleside on the Bay will celebrate with their Annual Golf Cart Christmas Parade.

Portland will welcome pets to their Pooch-A-Palooza with Santa. Hopefully, pet parents will donate pet food for shelter and fostered animals as Santa and his elves help make a special photo for the holidays.

Two special live music events will happen this weekend, also. Coffee N’ More in Ingleside will be open one evening with special music. Aransas Pass’s Rialto Theater will have sing-a-long Christmas Caroling to help raise funds for Rockport’s Aransas Repertory Theatre.

Visit My Coastal World’s calendar for details about these and more activities planned for residents and visitors.
