Old Town Spring celebrates the holidays

Last Saturday I attended the 28th annual Old Town Spring’s “Home for the Holidays” celebration.  I don’t know whether it was because it was a gorgeous sunny day with a high temperature of 80 degrees or people were ready to get into a holiday mood but whatever the reason there were a lot of people in Old Town Spring for the opening week of the “Home for the Holidays” celebration.  If you did not get a chance to go last weekend you have plenty of time as it continued through December 20th. 

For those who have never been to Old Town Spring , it is considered the birth place of Spring TX back in the 1800s.  Today, Old Town Spring is a quaint town of 150 speciality shops and restaurants. 

During their “Home for the Holidays” celebration the town is decked out with lights, ornaments, garlands, and bows.  Santa is in his house ready to hear little girls and boys wish lists, a smaller scale train takes the kids for a ride around the square, strolling musicians entertain, and the shops have their holidays goods out ready to tempt you.

If you get hungry after all that shopping, I recommend you order the fried pickles at Puffabelly’s.  They are delicious!
