Organizers say Liberty Hill Christmas Festival a success
(Posted: Dec. 8, 2009)
Hundreds of Liberty Hill children waited in line Sunday afternoon to visit with Santa at the Liberty Hill Christmas Festival. Santa parked his sleigh at Liberty Hill Elementary School and rode a float in the Christmas Parade to Foundation Park. There, he spoke with children and let each one choose a gift from items donated by the City of Liberty Hill and others.
Although some may have been unwilling to brave the cool temperatures and the damp aftermath of Sunday morning's rainfall, organizers say this year's event may have been the biggest and best to date. While some vendors decided not to bring their wares into uncertain weather conditions, it didn't seem to impact parade participants or those who lined the parade route.
Radio Free Liberty Hill received the following letter today from Organizer Leslye Pogue:
"On behalf of the Liberty Hill Chamber of Commerce, the City of Liberty Hill, the Liberty Hill Public Library, David Pope Insurance, and the Fellowship Baptist Church, we would like to thank everyone who braved the weather on Sunday to attend the Annual Christmas Festival. The turnout was very impressive and I believe everyone enjoyed themselves. Santa visited with over 400 children during the event.
I would also like to thank the organizations, businesses, and individuals who were represented in the parade and at the vendor sites.
A special thanks goes out to Zack Milam, Charles and Kathy Canady, and Santa for all the hard work in getting this event off the ground. The festival grows each year because of these individuals who work tirelessly to make the festival a successful Liberty Hill community tradition.
Thanks again to all. We wish the Liberty Hill community a safe and happy holiday season. See you next year!"
