2016 Christmas In The Park Vendor Application PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 25 April 2016 10:57

The 2016 Christmas In The Park Festival will be on Saturday, November 26, 2016 from 11:00 a.m. until 9:00 p.m. The fireworks and lighting of the park will take place around 6:00 p.m. and this year promises to be even better than last year (and last year was fabulous). The festival takes place at the City of Jasper’s Sandy Creek Park on Marvin Hancock Drive close to our downtown area. The creek is surrounded by a walking path and the fireworks take place over the creek itself.

Musical entertainment will be provided during the day with local and professional talent. The two trains will be running around the park except for the areas that are off-limit due to the fireworks setup. We were filled with capacity for last year regarding vendor spaces, and we are hoping to rearrange in order to accommodate a few more. Requests are coming in daily for a vendor spot. The majority of the vendors will be set-up on Marvin Hancock Drive
itself. There are a few spots inside the park itself. Those will be filled with special request on a first come first served basis.

Our local school district is once again providing transportation from downtown parking areas to the street entrance where patrons can walk or take the City’s trolley car transportation to the park entrance itself. If you are interested in being a part of this wonderful event, please complete the enclosed application and return as soon as possible to reserve your spot. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Denise Kelley at 409-383-6107 or by email at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

Booklet - FAIR HOUSING Equal Opportunity for All PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 11 April 2013 15:00

America, in every way, represents equality of opportunity for all persons. The rich diversity of its citizens and the spirit of unity that binds us all symbolize the principles of freedom and justice upon which this nation was founded. That is why it is extremely disturbing when new immigrants, minorities, families with children, and persons with disabilities are denied the housing of their choice because of illegal discrimination. The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) enforces the Fair Housing Act, which prohibits discrimination and the intimidation of people in their homes, apartment buildings, and condominium developments – in nearly all housing transactions, including the rental and sale of housing and the provision of mortgage loans. Equal access to rental housing and homeownership opportunities is the cornerstone of this nation’s federal housing policy. Housing providers who refuse to rent or sell homes to people based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, familial status, or disability are violating federal law, and HUD will vigorously pursue enforcement actions against them. Housing discrimination is not only illegal, it contradicts in every way the principles of freedom and opportunity we treasure as Americans. HUD is committed to ensuring that everyone is treated equally when searching for a place to call home
