The Texarkana Regional Arts and Humanities Council, City of Texarkana, Texas, and Texarkana Arts and Historic District are partnering with the Perot Theatre to present the 3rd annual Perot Holiday Traditions on December 19, 2020. 

Olaf’s Frozen Adventure and Frozen will play on the largest indoor movie screen in Texarkana at 10:00 a.m. with a repeat of the short film Olaf’s Frozen Adventure along with Frozen II at 2:00 p.m.  Festivities on Main Street, including Santa Claus, food trucks, and vendors, will be available from 12:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. in front of the theatre. There is a one hundred percent chance of snow all day on Main Street too!

Thanks to the support of daytime movie sponsors, Snow Developments and Kinetic by Windstream, and returning event sponsor, Farmers Bank & Trust, ticket prices are $6 for the daytime movie package. Hot chocolate and hot apple cider will be offered to festival attendees, served from the back of an antique fire truck.  Vendors will line the street for last-minute holiday gift shopping and food trucks will be on-site to grab a bite to eat between movies.

In consideration of COVID-19 safety protocols, changes have been made to ensure attendees feel comfortable and safe.  In lieu of the craft table, prepackaged craft bags will be distributed to children. Santa Claus will be on-hand to offer a safe photo opportunity, and the event space has been expanded and modified to allow more room for social distancing. Staff will sanitize surfaces in and out of the theatre regularly throughout the day. Attendees are asked to wear a mask and use social distancing.

The nostalgic atmosphere begins at sunset with a horse-drawn carriage at the theatre from 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.  It’s a Wonderful Life ticket-holders will receive a complimentary ride in the carriage.  The movie starts at 7:00 p.m., so arrive early to experience your carriage ride without being late to the movie.  Tickets for the evening movie, including the carriage ride, are $6 per person, thanks to our event sponsor, Farmers Bank &Trust.

All of these holiday festivities will take place in or around the historic Perot Theatre at 221 Main Street in Downtown Texarkana with the support of Texarkana Regional Arts & Humanities Council, Perot Theatre, City of Texarkana, Texas, and Texarkana Arts & Historic District.
