Beat the heat at the Fifth Annual Christmas in July Arts and Crafts Fair July 13-14 The City of Tyler Parks and Recreation Department will host the Fifth Annual Christmas in July Arts and Crafts Fair at the Rose Garden Center Saturday, July 13 and Sunday, July 14.  The Fair will feature 58 booths offering unique, fun, artsy and just plain cute items for sale.

"This event is important to the Parks Department because it is a fund raiser to help cover the cost of our free programing that is provided during the year to the citizens of Tyler,"  said Debbie Isham, special events/recreation manager.

This one-of-a-kind event is sure to please any shopper who is looking for quality handmade items for gifts, as well as for themselves. It is a great event for early Christmas shoppers to find stocking stuffers or gifts to put under the tree. Shoppers can purchase handmade crafts, unique jewelry, knives, wood crafts and wood inlay, leather craft, goats milk soap, organic body products, doll clothing, photography, fine art and mixed media art, crosses and much more.

Shoppers can also enjoy the sounds of the holidays early with scheduled live entertainment. Santa is even flying in just for this event from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday and 1 to 4 p.m. on Sunday. Concessions will be served by Gabi's Gourmet.

During the event, the Rose Garden will be open and is free to visit.  The Garden features the largest public collection of roses in the United States with 32,000 bushes and 600 cultivars.
