The Christmas shopping frenzy is soon to begin, and instead of fighting traffic and long lines at the “big box” stores, the Junior League of Beaumont (JLB) invites you to A Very Merry Main Street Market, a three-day, holiday shopping experience featuring unique merchandise from more than 100 carefully selected vendors from Texas and across the country from Thursday, Nov. 30 – Saturday, Dec. 2, at the Beaumont Civic Center. Shop for clothing, gourmet foods, children’s items, jewelry and more during the market. Admission is $10.

Christmas in Boomtown returns December 9th to Gladys City

Did you know that the first mention of Santa’s reindeer was in 1823 in a poem titled “Old Santeclaus with Much Delight?” So, in 1901, that first Christmas after the Lucas Gusher, the children would have been watching for Santa’s reindeer.

“One thing we like to do in Gladys City is to take people back in time. We want people to imagine that first Christmas after the Lucas Gusher blew and the excitement people must have felt,” said Museum Director Troy Gray.
