The holidays are always a wonderful time to take in the musical gifts of both local and visiting talents. Sunday, Dec. 2, will be an especially busy day of tuneful offerings with performances at two different churches.

The First Baptist Church of Stephenville located at 334 W. Green St. is presenting its 8th annual Christmas Festival with showings at 10:45 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Featured will be the First Baptist Sanctuary, Student and Children's Choirs along with their special guests, The DFW Allstars Instrumentalists, formerly of Granbury Live.

The day can be rounded out with a concert presented by the Tarleton Men's Choir, who will give a 7:30 p.m performance at the Stephenville First Presbyterian Church located at 1302 N. Harbin Dr.

The events are free to the community and both churches look forward to a large attendance.
