Due to expected severe weather this weekend, the City of Benbrook is postponing these holiday activities by one week.
Please note the date changes below.
The Benbrook Firefighters Association is hosting Pictures with Santa and Mrs. Claus on Friday, December 13, 2013 from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. at the Benbrook Community Center/YMCA (BCC/YMCA), 1899 Winscott Road. For a donation of four (4) food items, or $5.00, your family can take home a keepsake photo. Free refreshments will be provided and games and craft activities will be hosted by the BCC/YMCA.
On Saturday, December 14, don’t miss the 22nd annual Christmas Tree Lighting and Fireworks Show. The event starts at 7:00 p.m. at the Benbrook Community Center/YMCA. Donations of money or non-perishable food items will be accepted at the park entrance. All proceeds benefit the annual Benbrook Firefighter Food Drive.
Immediately following the Christmas Tree Lighting and Fireworks Show, the annual Benbrook Winter Wonderland display lights up Dutch Branch Park with twinkling lighted holiday characters and merriment. Stroll the park and enjoy this free holiday exhibit each evening through New Year’s Day. Local non-profit organizations will occasionally be available to provide holiday treats.

The Benbrook Fire Department works tirelessly during the holiday season to brighten the lives of Benbrook families by meeting community needs. The Benbrook Firefighter Food Drive accepts non-perishable food items and monetary donations at the Benbrook Fire Station, 528 Mercedes Street, until December 16, 2013. All donations directly benefit families living in Benbrook.
