The event gets underway at 5 p.m. for the chili supper and silent auction of baked goods. It lasts until 8 p.m., or until the visiting is done and cleanup is completed.
The Aledo Economic Development Corp. sponsors the event.
Tickets, at just $5 apiece for adults and $3 for children younger than 8, can be purchased at Aledo City Hall and the East Parker County Library. And it’s all you can eat.
