Because of expected freezing rain, ice and frigid temperatures in Paris and Lamar County, Christmas in Fair Park has been pushed back one week.
As in the past, Christmas in Fair Park will be at the Paris-Lamar County Fairgrounds, 570 E. Center St., Paris.
Hours remain the same — from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday and from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday.
It’s all free — no admission cost, and no fee for parking.
The Community Exhibit Center, Building “B”, West Side Building, and the Coliseum will feature booths and exhibits from local businesses and craftsmen with holiday gifts and decorations.
Set-up times for all exhibitors are Thursday, Dec. 12 from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. and Friday, Dec. 14 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The Community Exhibit Center, Building “B”, and the West Side Building have central heat. The booths are 8 feet by 10 feet and are divided with red drapery. One six-foot table and two chairs will be provided.
The Coliseum booths are 10 feet by 10 feet, divided with red drapery and furnished with one six-foot table and two chairs.
Outside booth spaces are 10 feet by 20 feet with no tables or chairs provided. All booth spaces — inside, outside, and food concessions — are $75 each.
Santa Claus will be at Christmas in Fair Park to hear what children want for Christmas and to have his picture taken with them.
There also will be entertainment on the grounds, with activities for children.
A number of concession booths will be available.
