“Free activities and family fun” is the theme of this year’s Lone Star College-Tomball Holiday Fest.  The annual community event is free, open to the public, and takes place on Friday, December 6, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. This year’s Holiday Fest will take place inside to due to expected weather conditions.

All games and activities will be free, along with the cookies, popcorn, punch and coffee that will be served during the event.  Hot dogs and sodas will be available for purchase.
