Sunrise Lions, local church join together to host Christmas Tree Festival

(Seguin) -- Santa will be making a special visit to a local tree lot this weekend. Santa has been invited to smile for the camera at the Seguin Sunrise Lions tree lot located at the corner of King and Walnut Streets. Lion Suzanne Sanders says the group is not only excited about welcoming Santa this year but also hosting the event in conjunction with The First Presbyterian Church's Christmas Tree Festival. She says with the lot sitting on church property, it just made sense to host the special event.

"We're open every evening and all day Saturday and from noon on Sunday. We're selling live Christmas trees. They start out at about three feet and go up to nine feet. They're reasonably priced and we're the only ones in town that sell for charity. All of our money goes to our scholarships and to our local charity. One of the things we're doing new this year is that we're going to have a free visit with Santa this Saturday from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m., but the church is also having a little festival in their parking lot, a Christmas Tree Festival where they'll have vendors selling things. They'll be giving away goodie bags for the children and hot cocoa. Then, you can bring your children or your pets or even grandma if she wants to sit on Santa's lap and take a picture. So be sure and bring your camera or your cell phone because we will not be charging you to take a picture with Santa. We want all the kids and all the pets to get a chance to take their picture," said Sanders.

Sanders says she encourages families to purchase their trees or other products from the local tree lot. She says proceeds go directly back to the Lions and the charities that it supports.

"The other things that we are selling is we have some beautiful live wreaths. We also have some artificial wreaths that have a lot of character to them because they're all handmade. We sell a tree preservative which really helps maintain your tree's freshness through the holidays because you don't want to put a tree up without, because if you use this stuff, it'll still be fresh into February," said Sanders.

The Christmas Tree Festival is a free event.
