Christmas Festival Set To Raise The Curtain
Eat all you want. That's the message most people would like to hear during the holidays. But its not usually the message from most authorities. And nobody wants to go into January feeling ten pounds overweight.
But there may be a healthy attitude you can take to approach food--and still enjoy yourself.
In the Family Spotlight, Kathryn Parker, a Registered Dietitian tells TV20's David Snyder why people shouldn't drive themselves crazy with worry about food during the holidays.
We got a sneak peak of the Christmas Festival at Westside Baptist Church in Gainesville.
The show officially opens Friday night.
The three act performance is 2-1/2 hours long and involves over 300 people, between the cast and crew.
The play includes a 100- voice choir, 30- piece orchestra, choreographed acts, parade, live animals, and special effects. The show will end with a retelling of the life of Christ, set in Bethlehem.
Even Santa Claus and Frosty the Snowman will make a special apperance.
Music Associate Asa Walker explained, "This is first and foremost a family event, and for many families it is a new tradition. So we keep it so there is something for everyone in the family to enjoy."
They will perform seven shows, all at 6pm, on December 3rd through the 5th, and December 10th through the 12th. Tickets are $7. For more information, go to: http://www.gainesvillechristmasfestival.org/Gainesville_Christmas_Festival/Home.html
