Under an unseasonably warm sun — more than 230 youngsters from the area enjoyed the Holly Jolly Christmas festivities on the train depot grounds Saturday. Numerous activities from rock climbing to bull riding to a plethora of structures kept upright by compressed air competed for attention. And, of course, there was Santa in his sleigh, available for photographs accompanied by “Spark In the Dark,” a musical man-and-wife duo from Corpus Christi. The event was sponsored by the City of Beeville and conducted under the watchful eye of City Manager Jack Hamlett — who agreed the warmth of a South Texas holiday was preferable to the bleak, biting frost of Dickens’ time.
