Join the Downtown Museum District on the grounds of the Texas Energy Museum and the Art Museum of Southeast Texas (AMSET) for the annual Children's Holiday Party and Tree Lighting. Children and their families are invited, once again, to celebrate the holiday season with hands-on activities at this festive celebration complete with a visit from Santa Claus. Admission is free and open to the public.
Bring the entire family and light up the season by creating festive ornaments, decorating holiday cookies, and visiting with Santa Claus before mailing a letter to the North Pole. Enjoy holiday carols, hot chocolate and more. Completing this afternoon of holiday fun is the lighting of the Christmas tree at 6 p.m. by Beaumont Mayor Becky Ames. Children are encouraged to decorate the tree with the ornaments they created, and take one home for their own decoration.
