Keep Argyle Beautiful will host the annual Argyle Christmas Festival and Tree Lighting from 4 to 7 p.m. Saturday at the Argyle Fire Station, 511 S. Gibbons Road. Those attending are asked to bring canned or boxed food to benefit the Argyle Food Bank.
The event will have food, games, face painting, scavenger hunts, balloon sculptures, holiday vendors, entertainers, a photo booth and crafts for children. Santa will make a special entrance and children can have their pictures taken with him. The evening will end with holiday songs and the tree lighting in front of the Argyle Fire Station.
KAB board member Deborah Cottle said, "Santa will be making his appearance at 4:30 in a very special way and you don't want to miss it. Everyone needs to come help make the Grinch's heart grow three times larger before the tree lighting at 6:30."
