Houston, it’s time to get into the holiday spirit.
Mayor Annise Parker, Santa, Frosty the Snowman, Mrs. Gingerbread, along with officials from Reliant Energy and the Downtown District, gathered recently to announce details of the city’s annual holiday celebration and tree lighting.
The event is scheduled to take place on Friday, December 2 at City Hall from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
The fun event will feature a towering 67-foot White Fir holiday tree, along with Grammy Award-winning entertainers, Diane Schuur and 2003 American Idol winner Ruben Studdard.
There will also be pictures with Santa, gospel music and a toy drive benefiting the Salvation Army Greater Houston Area Command.
I covered the news conference and of course, I had to have my picture taken with my favorite Christmastime characters.
