TUSCUMBIA – The annual “Christmas in the Country” takes place Saturday, November 20 at the LaGrange College Site Park. The park will be open from 9am–4pm for the festivities. 

Take a walk back in time and experience Christmas of yesteryear. Be sure to stop by the Welcome Center upon arrival. There you will find delicious baked goods for purchase at the annual bake sale. Proceeds go toward the upkeep and maintenance of the park. 

Afterward, take a self-guided tour of the pioneer log cabin village. Each cabin is beautifully decorated, both inside and out. There is a period kitchen, barber shop, and chapel as well. These make great backdrops for holiday pictures of your own. 

Santa will make an appearance for kids of all ages and he will be available for photos. There will be various vendors, arts and crafts, and concessions, as well as hayrides to the top of the mountain and the historic LaGrange Cemetery. 

No admission is charged for this event, but donations are welcome and go toward the upkeep and maintenance of the facilities at the park. 

LaGrange College Site Park is located at 1491 LaGrange College Road, off of Hwy 157 in Leighton.   For more information, contact Louise Lenz at 256-446-9324 or
