I believe the OP was asking about the Christmas festival that was organized by Southpoint Church last year.

Yes. That was 2 years ago. It think it they were overwhelmed by the crowd. Traffic was backed up to the light in Leonardtown by Burch Mart.

They learned a lot from that event. I believe the one thing they learned was it takes many MANY months to plan.

It sure was a great idea though. I wanted to go, but when I saw the traffic backed up to town I stayed home.

Christmas at the fairgrounds

This event is not planned for this season. I know a member of that church and asked over the summer if it will be this year and she said no. There interested and want to plan on doing it next year though. I took my family and thought it was really nice. I was told the reason it was not planned this year or last was the ammount of effort needed and planning required. As someone previously mentioned i believe the turn out was far more than was expected. We will see what happens for the 2017 christmas season.
