Each year, during the Christmas holiday season, the City of Spanish Fort hosts its 'Twas the Night Before Christmas
Book Reading at 5 Rivers Delta Resource Center. This year's special family event will be held on Thursday, December 15, 2016, beginning at 7:00 p.m.
Children are encouraged to wear their warmest pajamas and to bring along their favorite blanket to sit on while they gather around the fireplace in the Longleaf Room of Delta Hall. The evening begins with the joyous singing of Christmas carols, putting everyone in the Christmas spirit in anticipation of the main event!
With much animation and excitement, the guest readers read aloud from several Christmas holiday books, much to the children’s delight. The final story, Clement Clarke Moore’s memorable poem, 'Twas the Night Before Christmas
, is read by a very special guest reader from the North Pole! As you can imagine, the atmosphere is magical for all little ones (and grownups) in attendance. Following our story time, cookies and warm cocoa are served to all.
This memorable event has become an annual tradition for many Spanish Fort and area families. We welcome you to join us and make it a Christmas tradition for your family, too!
This event is scheduled each year on Thursday in the week prior to the week of Christmas, beginning at 7:00 p.m. For more information and confirmation of the Book Reading date, please call Spanish Fort City Hall, 251-626-4884.
