Alamo lights up for the holidays
Cold weather didn't dampen the festive spirit at Sunday's Alamo Tree Lighting Festival, sponsored by the Alamo Chamber of Commerce. The festivities were attended by more than 200 people including little wide-eyed youngsters anxious to tell Santa their Christmas wishes.
Master of ceremonies Mark Curtis thanked the dozens of volunteer workers and merchants that supplied the free refreshments and the school choral groups for their performances and presented Santa Claus to the crowd.
All during the festivities 20-some tables were busy handing out food and drink along with two tables designed to entertain youngster with craft activities.
