Escape from the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. Bring the family out to the country and enjoy “A Simple Christmas” under moss-draped live oak trees at Brazos Bend State Park, Saturday, December 7, 2013 from 3:00 – 7:00 pm. This 16th annual event includes children’s story time and craft, Victorian Era games, Dutch-oven cooking demonstrations, refreshments, marshmallow roasting, hayrides and of course Santa Claus.
The evening would not be complete without a performance by “The Brazos River Pickers” – old time, blue grass volunteer community band. (The pickers also play at the park the first Saturday of each month, October through April www.brazosriverpickers.com). See our beautiful lighted windmill from Thanksgiving weekend through New Year’s Day.
The event is held outdoors at the Nature Center lawn and amphitheater. Weather permitting. Bring a picnic supper. Event is free with park admission of $7 per person age 13 and up, age 12 and under free, senior discount.
The park’s Nature Center is open to the general public Monday through Friday from 11:00 am – 3:00 pm, Saturdays and Sundays from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm year ‘round. The center is also open most holidays (except Thanksgiving Day & Christmas Day). Free nature programs and hikes offered every weekend.
