TRUSSVILLE — First Baptist Church Trussville is going all out this year to provide fun and entertainment for families after the Trussville Christmas parade.
The parade will be on Sunday, Dec. 13, beginning at 3 p.m. The family Christmas Festival at First Baptist will follow. The free event includes a movie, popcorn, hot chocolate, Christmas storytime and much more.
Santa will be at the event and will wear a face shield. Parents can choose if they want Santa to keep his mask on or temporarily remove it for their photo op. Also, social distancing will be observed while participants are waiting in line through a winter wonderland.
“We’re going to everything possible to keep everyone safe,” said Hope Garrett with FBCT.
There will also be crafts available to do on-site or kids can take them home to do at another time.
“Those are going to be really fun, we have worked really hard on those this year,” Garrett said. “We did them last year but we have really stepped up our game this year!”
Food trucks from Southland BBQ, Hero Doughnuts and Pints of Popsicles will be parked at the church for those who would like to purchase a meal or treat.
