Holiday in the Park: free, family fun Saturday

Released by the City of Tyler:

TYLER, TX - Put on your mittens and break out the toboggan! The City of Tyler Parks and Recreation Department and KLTV 7 will be hosting the fourth annual Holiday in the Park and Bazaar on Dec. 11 and 12 at Bergfeld Park. This free event includes two "tubing hills", a snow play area, shopping, entertainment and more than 100,000 pounds of snow!

The fun begins on Dec. 11 from 4 to 8 p.m. with "Snow Play" in the park. At 7 p.m. Ballet Tyler will perform.

On Dec. 12, the Bazaar will run from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. and will feature more than 50 vendors displaying gift items for your friends or family…or maybe yourself. "Snow Play" will be open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. for kids of all ages. Local dance groups, musicians and choirs will entertain from 11:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. Finally, the evening will wrap up with the arrival of "Santa Scirto" on his special sleigh with an incredible surprise this year, and a showing of "Holiday Inn" in the Amphitheatre at 6 p.m.

More than 12,000 people attended the 2008 Holiday in the Park event and this year is expected to be bigger and better. Sponsors KLTV 7 will honor the Salvation Army with special guests and gifts for the Angel Tree.

"This is a wonderful event for the City of Tyler," said Debbie Isham, special events/recreation manager. "It is a chance for everyone in the community to come out and enjoy the snow, the local entertainment and greet neighbors before the holiday."

Bergfeld Park is located at Broadway and Fourth Street in Tyler, Texas. The snowplay, movie and entertainment are free of charge and open to the public. Concessions and shopping will be available.
