TYLER (TYLER MORNING TELEGRAPH) - The city of Tyler Parks and Recreation Department will host its fifth annual Christmas in July Arts and Crafts Fair at the Rose Garden Center from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, according to information from the city.

Santa is flying in just for this event from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday and 1 to 4 p.m. on Sunday. Gabi's Gourmet will serve concessions.

The fair will feature 58 booths offering unique and fun items for sale.

 

This free event will be indoors in the Rose Garden Center, 420 Rose Park Drive.

"This event is important to the Parks Department because it is a fundraiser to help cover the cost of our free programming that is provided during the year to the citizens of Tyler," Special Events/Recreation Manager Debbie Isham said.

Shoppers can purchase handmade crafts, unique jewelry, knives, wood crafts and wood inlay, leather craft, goat's milk soap, organic body products, doll clothing, photography, fine art and mixed media art, crosses and more.

 

During the event, the Rose Garden will be open and is free to visit. The garden features the largest public collection of roses in the United States with 32,000 bushes and 600 cultivars.

For information, call 903-531-1214 or 903-531-1212.
