(Geronimo) -- The business community in Geronimo is inviting you over for a night of holiday fund. The Village of Geronimo Merchants Group on Friday night will be hosting its 4th Annual Geronimo Sip and Stroll.

Melissa Trost, who represents Corner Post Real Estate, says the group is excited about showing off all that the community of Geronimo has to offer.

"It's a chance to get people out here so they see some of the businesses that are out here. There's going to be 11 to 12 vendors set up at the Geronimo VFW -- set up inside. This is the first time that we will be able to have them inside so weather won't be as large of a factor as in previous years. So, it's just a chance for people to come out, meet some of the business owners and maybe do a little bit of Christmas shopping (and) just kind of have a chance to hang out with friends and enjoy our area," said Trost.

Trost says merchants and vendors will also be sharing some of their tasty drink recipes. She says the sampling is free and offers plenty of fun.

"The vendors at the Geronimo VFW as well as the businesses that will be open will all have some sort of hot beverage for people to sample whether it's wassail or hot chocolate or a concoction that they come up with on their own so they can sample all the great goodies. Some will have food and desserts and things like that so it's just kind of trying to get some people out here and have some fun while we are at it," said Trost.

In addition to shopping, Trost says there will be plenty of activities for the entire family.

"The Navarro Choir will be caroling. We are anticipating around 6:30 to 7 p.m. They are somewhat dependent upon the weather so they might have to alter their plans somewhat because they were going to walk around to some of the open businesses including the VFW. Sunshine and Sweet Tea is going to have Santa Claus I believe at 7 p.m. and that's another great opportunity for people to go check them out and see what they offer. Luv It's Flower Shop is going to be open. They've got a beautiful little nativity set up. The Guadalupe County Sheriff's (Office) will be here to help make sure everybody is safe that way people walking across (State Highway) 123 have a safe spot to do so. Hopefully, it will be a fun event for everyone and definitely family friendly so come on out," said Trost.

The Geronimo Sip and Stroll will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday night.
