Annual fall tour set for Nov. 16

Nov. 16 is the date for the annual fall tour sponsored by the Milam and Lee County Extension Education Association members. Anyone is welcome to sign-up and join us for a fun day trip to the Heritage Village near Woodville, Livingston Trade Days and Santa’s Wonderland hay ride through the lights in College Station.

The trip will cost $80 which includes: all-you-can-eat lunch at the Heritage Village, a tour of Heritage Village, hayride at Santa’s Wonderland and charter bus ride. One bus will leave from Rockdale and a second bus will leave from Giddings.

Heritage Village is a living museum of pioneer history, with a main street that is right out of the mid-1800’s. You will be able to walk through an old-time blacksmith shop, check out a railroad depot, visit a livery stable or any one of the community’s log cabins. The Pickett House Restaurant will serve us a boarding house style “all-you- can- eat” fried chicken, chicken and dumplings, country vegetables, cobbler, biscuits and cornbread meal to everyone on the tour.

After a tour of the village, we will board the buses for a short ride to Livingston Trade Days. You will have time to walk through covered pavilions and open air lots to shop and look.

The day will end with a hayride through the Santa’s Wonderland of Lights in College Station. It will be an unforgettable evening celebrating the holidays with friends under millions of lights. You will also be able to relax and enjoy the unique shops or sit around a cozy campfire listening to live music at Santa’s Town.
