Church groups and civic groups and individuals are also invited to participate in the festivities, by strolling along and singing carols, or hosting a living nativity scene, or providing other holiday events for guests who will be downtown that night.
Business will be competing for the coveted “Cocoa Cup” again this year, by preparing their special hot chocolate and making samples available for visitors. Those visitors will vote on their favorite, and the winner will be named about 8 p.m.
Ballots will be available at participating businesses and the Chamber of Commerce, 421 E. Davis Street. Completed ballots must be turned in at the Visitors’ Center (in the Oil Museum). One of those ballots will be drawn at 8 p.m., and the winner will receive a gift basket.
During this year’s Cocoa and Carols the Kiwanis will host an added attraction. Club members will provide their “earlier generation” tractors and wagons for hay rides that will take those downtown on a tour of the seasonal decorations.
Plans are to load the wagons in the 500 block of E. Davis. The hay rides will be free.
Santa will be on hand, spreading the holiday cheer at each participating business.
Everyone is invited to attend this activity and share in the holiday spirit that will abound.
For more information, or to sign up to participate, contact Luling Main Street Director Derek Hall at the Visitors’ Center, 421 E. Davis, or by calling 875-3214 ext. 3
