CROSSVILLE — The hassle and bustle of the Christmas season is in full swing. Pulling out all the holiday décor, decking the halls with shiny items and tinsel with sparkling lights, and inflatable animals and snowmen in the yards. Planning the visits with family and friends means extra cleaning, baking delicious goodies and cooking big meals.

That little bit of pressure to buy just the right gift for each person on your list, wrapping it and stashing it until the big day. Working at finishing the Christmas cards, getting everything to the post office on time. It is all part of the excitement of this biggest holiday of the year. 

There all kinds of activities to enjoy this Saturday in town, like taking the kids to the Christmas parade. After the parade the night is just starting. Everyone needs to plan to eat out and then head to the Palace Theatre downtown to see the Lucas and Friends Christmas Show. Have you ever taken the kids to see a great Christmas show? They will always remember you for it.

Let the excitement of the holiday grow even more with Christmas music, songs, dancing, laughs, fun and surprises. There will be lots of merry entertainment. The Lucas have a great show lined up that you are just going to love. The second half of the show is the best part as they reflect on the true reason for the season.

This is all part of the fun at the fourth annual Lucas Christmas Show being held this Saturday night. The doors will open at 6 p.m. with general seating, and the show will start at 7 p.m. There are only a few $10 tickets left, which can only be purchased by someone in the show, Ruth Lucas at 248-2487 or at the Fair Park Senior Center.

This Friday will be the breakfast with a doctor from Cumberland Medical Center. Tabitha Webb from CMC’s Hyperbaric Medicine and Wound Center will be speaking before bingo with Caris Health Care.

Get out and enjoy the holidays with your friends and make new ones at the Fair Park Senior Center. The center is at 1433 Livingston Rd., across from the fairgrounds. It is open to seniors Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. with some evening classes. Check out the website to learn more at http://www.fairparkseniorcenter.org or call 484-7416.
