Christmas in God’s Country
Please Don’t Drive Through it Like Hell

Hondo Area Chamber of Commerce will be celebrating its annual Christmas in God’s Country Nov. 19, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Christmas in God’s Country has been an annual tradition for the people of Hondo and the surrounding areas to come together to shop, eat, dance, play, and be merry. The entertainment will range from a laser shooting range to live performances from local talents. This event will also produce vendors to satisfy Christmas shoppers’ cravings from handcrafted arts and crafts items to commercial items.

Event Chair for Christmas in God’s Country Ray Bernal believes this event will be a great for friends and family to spend time together. “We know last year was a great success, and we expect this year to be bigger and better,” Bernal said. After the vendors shut down their booths at 4 p.m., visitors and residents are welcomed to navigate their way through the South Texas Maize or take a look at the newly renovated sign. The “This is God’s Country, Please Don’t Drive Through it Like Hell” sign has been missing for two years, and is expected to have its debut this winter season. They are also encouraged to stay and enjoy the variety of local restaurants and stores before the annual night parade begins at 7 p.m. The parade illuminates downtown Hondo with a festival of Christmas lights. Chamber of Commerce Event Coordinator for Christmas in God’s Country, Lyndee Martin, says the event will be a wonderful way to kick-off the holiday season. “The atmosphere is just so welcoming, you’ll want to stay all day,” Martin said. “There are so many things to be seen and done.”

Vendors can register for Christmas in God’s Country by calling or by visiting the chamber’s Web site to see the various package deals. One such deal ends Oct. 7, and it will include a guaranteed booth space for both Christmas in God’s Country and the 47th Annual Wild Game Festival. The Wild Game Festival is a two day event includes the 2nd Annual International Bar-B-Que Cookers America, IBCA, Bar-B-Que and Wild Game Cook-Off, live entertainment, and various items being shoot from a catapult.
