Fifth annual Holiday in the Park to be held Dec. 10 and 11

Put on your mittens and break out the toboggan! The City of Tyler Parks and Recreation Department will be hosting the fifth annual Holiday in the Park and Bazaar on
Dec. 10 and 11 at Bergfeld Park. This event includes a "tubing hill", a snow play area, shopping, entertainment, a kid's zone featuring pony rides, a bungee jump and rock wall plus more than 50,000 pounds of snow!

The fun begins on Dec. 10 from 4 to 8 p.m. with "Snow Play" and the Kids Zone in the park. At 7 p.m. Ballet Tyler will perform.

On Dec. 11, 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 and the Kids Zone" will be open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. for kids of all ages. Local dance groups and choirs will entertain from 11:30 a.m. until 5 p.m. Finally, the evening will wrap up with a showing of "Holiday Inn" in the amphitheatre at 6 p.m.

More than 25,000 people have attended the Holiday in the Park event over the last four years 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 and fun family 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 park, 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. Concessions and shopping will be available.
