Magnolia Community Celebrates Three Days of Hometown Christmas

Magnolia’s Hometown Christmas

The small community of Magnolia, Texas, located northwest of Houston, is coming to life as it celebrates three days of festivities known as Magnolia’s Hometown Christmas.

It begins Friday, December 10, 2010, and runs through Sunday, December 12th; young and old Magnolia residents and visitors alike, dare not miss a minute of it.

The Annual Christmas Parade, hosted by Magnolia Area Chamber of Commerce, is scheduled on Saturday, December 11, 2010.   It begins at 10:00 am, so round up the family, come early and find a good spot.  The parade’s starting point is Magnolia’s Unity Park Drive and Nichols Sawmill Road.

Performances by local schools, churches and business are scheduled throughout the festivities, including Magnolia High School’s band, varsity choir, Magnolia West High School’s color guard, and MISD’s elementary school choir competition and more.

An ice skating rink is set up next to Magnolia Depot and will be open for skating all three days.

Other excitement includes visits with Santa, children’s games, bounce houses and slides; horse Carriage rides, and the lighting of the Christmas tree.

Also included is a Christmas market offering goods from crafters, vendors, artists, quilters and more. Hot chocolate and wassail will be available throughout the weekend. Cookie Express will feature homemade cookies, bread and candies.

Come and enjoy a Magnolia Tradition.
