Christmas Showcase and Book Distribution
Time & Location
About the Event
Due to the effects of Covid-19, the City of Spanish Fort has been forced to adjust its usual Christmas season events for this year. The traditional Christmas parade has been canceled, but the City will still celebrate the season. The annual Book Reading and the Tree Lighting will be modified this year so that the public can safely enjoy the holiday decorations at the Community Center. This year we will have a Christmas Showcase and Book Presentation in a drive-through format at the Spanish Fort Community Center at 7361 Spanish Fort Boulevard. The event is sponsored by Goodwyn, Mills and Cawood.
At this Christmas Showcase, parents, children and anyone young at heart can drive through the Community Center parking area and view the Christmas decorations installed by our city employees. Santa and his elf and Mrs. Claus will be there to wave and say hello, and for vehicles with children, each family will receive a Christmas book, and each child will receive a Christmas-themed goody bag! There will be live music performances, and other surprises which participants can enjoy as they drive through. And children will be able to drop off their letters to Santa!
Police will be on hand to route through the west entrance of the Community Center facility and will exit through the Blakeley Way exit. Should traffic backup, vehicles waiting in line will be staged through Spirit Park. Through traffic on Highway 31 and Blakeley Way may experience delays during that time.
The City wishes Merry Christmas to all and to all a happy, healthy and safe holiday season.
