Annual Fall Events in Corpus Christi
It’s finally the time of year when families get together and spend time being thankful for each other, enjoying feasts and sweet treats, decorating their homes, bargain shopping for the coming year, watching holiday movies, and staying warm in front of their fireplaces. If a wrench has been thrown in your holiday plans because you have to move, don’t let moving to Corpus Christi during the fall and winter months hinder you and your family from having fun together. All My Sons Moving & Storage is a lead moving company in Corpus Christi and has created a list of annual fall events in Corpus Christi for new residents to enjoy.
1. Jewish Food Festival – 2015 marked the 29th annual Jewish Food Festival at Congregation Beth Israel located on Saratoga Blvd. Each year, the festival features classic dishes like brisket with Kugel, cabbage rolls, split pea soup, matzah ball soup, corned beef sandwiches, tabbouleh, and much more. There will also be featured delis and pastries, along with live music.
2. Art Exhibits – Corpus Christi movers want new residents to know that the city is very cultured and is constantly featuring new art exhibits. Some past exhibits include Chicanitas: paintings from the Cheech Marin Collection, works from local Corpus Christi artists Joe Pea and Ricardo Ruiz, Eloquent Objects: Georgia Okeeffe and still-life art, and Malou Flato paintings.
3. A Christmas Carol – Throughout the month of November and December, leading up until the week before Christmas, residents in Corpus Christi enjoy the annual A Christmas Carol musical.
4. Art Museum of South Texas – The annual fall events in Corpus Christi tend to have a lot of art, and the first Friday of every month is free public admission to the Art Museum of South Texas. The art museum is a perfect way to get out of the house and have some fun with your children this fall and winter after your move is complete.
5. Harbor Lights Festival – The Harbor Lights Festival takes place every year and is a local fall and winter tradition that is a favorite among locals and Corpus Christi movers. Called a “must attend” family event, the day begins with the AEP Texas Children’s parade and follows with children’s activities, entertainment, food, vendors, inflatable games, and Children’s Gift of Love. The Harbor Lights Festival typically takes place the first weekend in December.
6. Basketball – If you are moving to Corpus Christi, locals are really big supporters of Texas A&M, and during the fall and winter seasons women and men’s basketball are the talk of the town. Invite your family, friends, and new neighbors over to a Texas A&M watching party, or go to your first home game this fall season.
Don’t let the fact that you are moving during the holiday season keep you confined in your home unpacking boxes and getting your home setup. If this is your first holiday season in Corpus Christi, make the most out of it and try to attend some of the annual fall events in the area.
