2nd Annual Jingle Berry Bash with Arts in the Park

More About 2nd Annual Jingle Berry Bash with Arts in the Park

Karaoke, live music, silent auction, kid’s crafts and a visit from Santa are on the menu at the 2nd Annual Jingle Berry Bash, Thursday, December 12th, 11:00 am – 7:30 pm at T-Berry’s Diner, 501 Lincolnway Avenue, La Porte. Dave Thornberry’s passion for music and a love for the people of La Porte inspire him to sponsor the holiday celebration to raise money for La Porte’s Arts in the Park. A signature Jingle Berry Fizz drink is free with every meal. Customer carry-outs and T-Berry’s ‘reindeer’ deliver orders to office parties and luncheon gatherings throughout town. Local businesses treat their staff to a merry lunch. T-Berry’s Diner donates a 15% give-back of all sales to Arts in the Park.

Live holiday music gets things rolling at Jingle Berry Bash 2019. Featured artists include: Lisa Wolf Smithson on violin at 11:00 am, Joan Davis and Donovan Diedrich from Roxy Music at 12:30 pm, and Dave Thornberry and Sue McClain at 1:30. The Blue Sky Band, (Ted Taylor, Sandy Young, and Tom and Sheryl Edwards) performs at 4:00 pm and brings down the house with a rousing rendition of “Here Comes Santa Clause” just as Santa arrives at 5:30 pm.

Young and old alike laugh till they hurt as they belt out their renditions of favorite Christmas songs during an evening of family friendly karaoke starting by 6pm. Even Santa Clause gets into the swing of things after his long sleigh ride from the North Pole. Apparently karaoke is one of his favorite activities!

The festive music provides a pleasant atmosphere as children enjoy making Jingle Berry Bash ornaments and diners browse the Quiet as a Mouse silent auction. Excitement mounts all day as bidders eagerly hope theirs will be the winning bid on many items, including His and Hers TREK Bikes, restaurant bundles, Gift Certificates from Thode’s Floral, Go Aerial, Roxy Music along with other amazing Downtown La Porte stores and Gail’s ‘Very Merry’ snowmen and Santas. A Jingle Berry Tree displays Jan Jongkind’s Premier Jewelry for easy holiday shopping.

The silent auction closes at 7:15 pm when Arts in the Park volunteers announce the winners. A portion of all cash-n-carry sales and 100% of the auction proceeds help fund next year’s 20th Anniversary Arts in the Park, a free outdoor concert and fine art series. Every year many favorite artists return and new talent surprises. Concert bookings reflect diverse musical genres. Local artisans display a wide range of art forms. KidsArt, Zumba, aerial yoga, Drum Circle, dance classes, hula hoop art and Guitar Madness provide Music & Art in Motion for all to join in! And the 2020 season will end with another FoxTrot 5K run/walk and concert in September!

“We are grateful to all who donated silent auction items, T-Berry’s Restaurant and all who come together at our Jingle Berry Bash,” says Lisa Smithson, Executive Director of Arts in the Park. “Our goal is to encourage all to ‘shop and dine La Porte’ this Christmas. We are excited to celebrate our 20th Anniversary of Arts in the Park with La Porte next year!”
