Christmas in the Park, Jasper, TX

Christmas in the Park is an annual holiday tradition that takes place in the heart of downtown Jasper, Texas along the banks of Sandy Creek Park. A vision of the City of Jasper, this event was created and patterned after the Festival of Lights event in Natchitoches, Louisiana. Utilizing the experience and expertise of an established 85 year old holiday event, the City of Jasper sought  to establish a similar event using the natural park setting. This whimsical event has brought people from all over the East Texas area to  experience the charm of Jasper during the holidays.

Booklet - FAIR HOUSING Equal Opportunity for All PDF Print E-mail
