Katy Old Fashioned Christmas Festival 2016 - Rescheduled
I had originally wrote a post concerning an Old Fashioned Christmas being held in Old or Historic Katy TX back on December 2, 2016. This annual event was suppose to be held on the following day or Saturday December 3, 2016. Due to fairly heavy rain in the whole area the Katy Old Fashioned Christmas was rescheduled to Saturday December 17, 2016. I have copied my prior post and updated it for this change. I did post December 3, 2016 concern about the event being held due to the bad weather. Numerous people look forward to attending this event every year as well the local small business owners who are hoping to sell their wares.
On Saturday December 17 , 2016 an Old Fashioned Christmas Festival is being sponsored by Katy Market Days in partnership with the City of Katy and No Label Brewery. The Festival will be held from 11:00 A.M. until 7:00 P.M. on Avenue B in Old Town or Historic Katy as Avenue B is essentially where a many of the participating merchants stores are located or are located close by in Old Katy Texas.

This pageant will feature Santa Claus and 50,000 lbs. of real snow arriving at probably around noon time. I have attended this festival in past years and the real snow was there for all to enjoy. Pictures with Santa are available for a fee.
In addition this festival features lots of delicious food available for purchase and excellent local entertainment. Local small business will be open with numerous potential gift ideas for Christmas shoppers. Think about supporting local small business by buying Christmas gifts from these merchants.
The festivities will feature things such as arts & crafts, jewelry, antiques, entertainment, carolers, all kinds of different unique gifts, hot cocoa and coffee. No Label Brewery will also have their well known and liked Beer Garden open on the corner of 3rd and Ave. B. The event will conclude with the lighting of the traditional Christmas Tree.
Katy Market days were established in 2001 and has been a growing endeavor ever since then. Katy Market Days is held on the third Saturday of every month between 2 ND Street and Avenue B. Most of the local vendors with shops in Old Katy participate in the monthly Katy Market Days event. Each month during any given year, the merchants pick a new theme. I also have written in the past several previous blogs about Katy Market days.
