The Lee County Extension Education Association is hosting a Fall Tour on Friday, November 16, to East Texas. Guests will be chauffeured from the Extension Office in Giddings on a chartered bus and begin the tour in Woodville, Texas at the Heritage Village, a living museum of pioneer history.

Walk through an old-time blacksmith shop, check out a railroad depot, and visit the livery stable or any one of the community’s log cabins.

Guests will also enjoy lunch at the world famous Pickett House Restaurant where they’ll be served boarding house style “all-youcan eat” fried chicken, chicken & dumplings, country vegetables, cobbler, biscuits & cornbread and a wonderful display of different condiments for their liking.

After lunch, the tour continues to Livingston, Texas where guests will enjoy Trade Days. Open yearround, Trade Days is set on over 200 acres in Livingston’s scenic Pedigo Park.

Shoppers peruse through two covered pavilions and open air lots that are host to a wide variety of food, arts and crafts, collectible and antique vendors.

Completing the day will be a visit to Santa’s Wonderland, a Texas Christmas experience. Guests will spend an unforgettable evening celebrating the holidays with their friends. Experience the holiday adventure of Santa’s Town, a Texas Christmas Village, where guests will board a Christmas Hayride and tour the sights and sounds of Santa’s Wonderland, featuring millions of dazzling Christmas lights, seen on a winding path stretching over a mile long.
