    Theme: "Celebrating Unity in Our Community!"

    Please join us for our Annual Festival of Lights Celebration on Saturday, December 8th, 2018.  The festival will host live entertainment, vendors, a lighted evening parade, and a visit from Santa Clause!  Trees in the Gazebo Park will be decorated by local sponsors in a contest of holiday spirit, beauty and ingenuity.  Winners will also be announced for the home and business decorating contest.  Included in the live entertainment will be the Hempstead ISD Instrumental Music Department, playing their Christmas program.

    Bring your lawn chairs, blankets, friends, family and holiday cheer!

    The Hempstead Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring the tree decorating contest with cash prizes for the winners.  Businesses, non-profit organizations, clubs and individuals are all invited to participate.  We invite you to join us and help decorate one of the large oak trees in Gazebo Park and make our downtown area truly look like a Winter Wonderland.

    Forms for the tree decorating contest, as well as the home and business decorating contest, vendor applications, parade entries and sponsorships are available at the Chamber building, 910 11th St., Hempstead, Texas.  They can also be filled out on this site (see links on this page) or found in The Chamber news to be mailed or faxed in.
