Judy Pancoast to perform in Historic Downtown Elgin

On Saturday, December 4, from 10 am to 8 pm join us downtown for live music featuring Judy Pancoast and a Holiday Bazaar at Holiday By the Tracks in Veterans’ Memorial Park. Judy will be in Elgin as part of her international House on Christmas Street tour. Her terrific tunes with timeless lyrics about childhood experiences resonate across the generations. Oh…and beats that make their feet dance! She calls it “Bubblegum Pop for Sweet Kids!” Judy’s outrageously fun performances have created a ruckus from Boston to Los Angeles and Minneapolis to New Orleans at festivals, performing arts centers and wherever children and families gather. Judy will perform throughout the day at Holiday By the Tracks sharing the stage with Patty Finney, Jan Seides, Sara Dinan, Minnie and Ella Jordan, Sarah Page and Raymond Ott, and MOVE - Musical Outreach Volunteer Entertainers. The Holiday Bazaar will include locally famous Lopez Burgers and art projects for the kids. Little ones can share their Christmas wishes with Santa Claus throughout the day. Everyone can enjoy finding handmade items at the Christmas Craft Fair at the Elgin Public Library from 10am to 4pm. Bring the whole family out during the holiday season where you can cut your own tree at one of our Christmas tree farms and enjoy a variety of art, crafts, shopping and holiday fun in Historic Downtown Elgin. Free admission!!

The Elgin Volunteer Fire Department Lighted Christmas Parade begins at dusk followed by an auction of decorated Christmas Trees to benefit local non-profit organizations. The evening concludes with a live nativity performance provided by St Peter’s Lutheran Church. From Thanksgiving weekend until right before Christmas, visit one of our local tree farms and hand select and cut down your family’s own Christmas tree. At the tree farms enjoy hay rides, farm animals, toasting marshmallows, games, beautiful scenery and gift shops. After you have found the perfect tree, enjoy shopping and dining at one of the many locally owned and operated stores and restaurants. Elgin will provide your family a unique holiday tradition that is filled with the special gifts of a small Texas town.
