Christmas Festival seeking vendors

October 19, 2016

On the third of December, Prosper’s usually placid downtown area will swell with the addition of over 6,000 visitors, there to enjoy the annual Prosper Christmas Festival.

The holiday festival has continued to grow in significant numbers each year, and organizers are now accepting applications for vendors who wish to place their merchandise, services or food items in front of this attractive clientele.

The event is set for Saturday, Dec. 3 from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. in Prosper’s historic downtown area.  And, while last year’s version brought in about 6,000 visitors, expectations for this year exceed that number.

In addition, this year’s festival carries the theme of “Saluting those who serve.” The theme honors and commemorates those who work to save and enrich the lives of others.  Active duty, former and retired military members, first responders, police officers, firefighters, church and community volunteers who selflessly serve others throughout the year will be remembered in a special way.

Traditionally, the festival has served as the kick-off to the Christmas season, with many families, relatives and visitors from neighboring cities and towns making it part of their shopping routine.

Sellers of handcrafted items along with vendors featuring one-of-a-kind specialties are especially sought by visitors and purchasers, wishing to obtain unique gift items.  Many attendees also take advantage of food and drink vendors as a substitute to preparing dinner at home.

Vendors seeking to showcase their items at the Christmas Festival must register before Sunday, Nov. 13.  Booth location is available on a first-come, first-served basis, presenting an incentive for vendors to register as early as possible.  Vendors are asked to be mindful of the theme in their booth decor.

Rides, trackless train, balloon artistry, a petting zoo, an inflatable obstacle course and slide, toddler bounce and spin art are all part of this year’s festival, including of course, an appearance by Santa Claus.

Entertainment will feature local youth and church groups and the community Christmas tree will be lit right before the evening concludes with a dazzling fireworks display.
