Rex Head sits on Santa’s lap while holding a candy cane before taking photos with Santa at the Red River Valley Fairgrounds in December 2018 morning for Christmas in Fair Park.

Christmas in Fair Park will run Friday and Saturday at the Lamar County Fairgrounds for its 30th year.

“We’ve got some of everything, I think,” executive director Rita Jayne Haynes said.

Haynes said there would be more for chidlren this year. Carson & Barnes Circus will come out with a bounce house, pony rides and even dinosaur rides from the circus’ most recent tour. 

The event features all kinds of handmade crafts, foods and more. On Friday, the park will open at 4 p.m. and close at 8. Santa will be available for pictures during that time. It will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday.
