GRAYSON COUNTY, TX -- A new event in Grayson County was designed to attract Christmas shoppers.

With only a few days left, those searching for gifts had a chance to pick up some last-minute items at Texoma Holiday in the Park.

Organizers say more than 80 vendors set up shop at the Mayor Arena at Loy Lake Park. A "kettle corn" vendor from the Whitewright area says he and his wife have taken part in similar festivals before, and decided to start their own.

"We have a vast selection of anything you need," says organizer Jerry Charlier. "We have Amish pastries, kettle corn, we have beef jerky, we have barbecue, we have crafts, a little bit of everything."

Charlier says the rain kept some people home, but things seemed to be picking up in the afternoon. Parents could also bring their kids to take a free picture with Santa Claus. They hope to make this an annual event.
