Top Holiday Celebrations Across Precinct 4
Time travel to the 19th century where Jones Park’s historic 1830s Redbud Hill Homestead comes to life with cookies, wassail, and a ceremonial tree lighting! As daylight fades, travel along the illuminated path to St. Nicholas’s workshop in the homestead, where you’ll meet Santa, his helpers, and Mrs. Claus. Holiday crafts and performances courtesy of Aldine ISD Honor Choir and Kingwood High School’s Madrigals add to the festive atmosphere. Complete the festivities with either a hot dog plate or a special pork dinner with all the holiday trimmings!
