Popular Montgomery County community Woodforest is spreading holiday cheer with an invitation for the public to participate in a series of festive activities, Dec. 7 - 10.

The community is hosting three seasonal events for the public in conjunction with its Hometown Holidays celebration for residents. The free festivities include hayrides, an arts and crafts show and a light parade.

“We love to go all out for the holidays,” said Shannon League, marketing director for Woodforest. “We sponsor a lot of resident-only activities, but wanted to share some of our most popular seasonal events with the public, so they can get a feel for what living in Woodforest all about.”

One of the most highly anticipated events is the annual Spirit and Sparkle hayride, which takes place from 6-8 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 7. The rides will start at Jackson Park, 2829 Woodforest Parkway North, taking holiday revelers on a tour of lavishly lit up neighborhoods.

On Friday, Dec. 9, the community hosts the Woodforest Arts and Crafts show from 5-9 p.m. at Stewart Elementary School, 680 Fish Creek Thoroughfare. Here, visitors can browse a trove of creative treasures, including fine art, original photography, jewelry, seasonal items and more to the delight of holiday shoppers looking for one-of-a-kind presents for everyone on their lists.

A procession of lighted cars, bikes and other wheeled vehicles from the community’s Forest Island, 4665 Woodforest Parkway North, to Jackson Park will take place 6-7 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 10, during the Parade of Lights. The event also features Disney princesses and a special guest marshal.

Woodforest’s events are planned by the community’s full-time lifestyle director, who also coordinates such year-round activities as movie nights, outings and festivals.
