Christmas on Main Street Set for December 2
La Porte, TX— One of La Porte's most well loved and well attended events, Christmas on Main Street, is scheduled this year for Thursday, December 2 from 5 to 8 p.m. The Festivities will include a tubing hill, a visit from Clutch the Rockets Bear, vendors, and entertainment from La Porte’s favorite music and performing groups. The festivities will officially begin with the parade at 5:00 p.m., and entertainment will start at 6 p.m.
The annual event, now in its 23rd year, is a favorite in the City of La Porte and for the surrounding areas as well. This year will feature all of the holiday favorites, including free pictures of the kids with Santa and Mrs. Claus at Five Points Plaza, generously sponsored by Walgreens. More than 50 vendors will be selling everything from arts and crafts to food to Christmas gift items. Clutch the Rockets Bear will sign autographs from 6 – 8 p.m., and he will be touring the street with Frosty the Snowman and Rudolph, and will help Santa and the Mayor light the tree at Five Points Plaza at 8 p.m. This year’s entertainment lineup will include choirs, orchestras and bands from LPISD schools on Main Street stages, and other performers on stage at Five Points Plaza.
Last year the City brought in a tubing hill that was a huge hit, and they will be bringing it back again for this year’s celebration. The hill will be covered with snow, and will be located just off of Main Street on North 1st Street. Children and adults of all ages will have the opportunity to slide from 6 – 8 p.m. It is provided by 4P Entertainment Group, Inc. out of Durango, Colorado. The tubing hill and Clutch the Rockets Bear were made possible with the support of Christmas on Main Street Sponsors Beacon Federal Credit Union and West Main Photography.
