If it feels like Christmas is creeping closer, look out — the season starts Tuesday in Crossett.

The 22nd annual Christmas on Pine and Around the Corner will be Nov. 20 in downtown Crossett.

During the event, businesses on Pine Street and in the surrounding area host open houses to showcase themselves and the community.

All of the businesses will have something special to offer, organizer Rosalind Ross said. Some will have discounts, some will have food, some will have giveaways and some will have all three.

Rodgers Financial Group will be cooking hamburger sliders and Southern Spice will be hosting an open house as part of the event.

“It’s a huge day for Carlynne’s, maybe their biggest day all year,” Ross said.

Ross also said that a few of the new businesses participating this year include Pine Street Market, Gold Buckle BBQ, Shiny Girlz, J & J Rooter Drain Services, Studio 202 and Gypsy Souls.

Other businesses participating include Sharpe’s Department Store, Southern Spice, State Farm Insurance, Kinard’s Jewelry, Farm Bureau, Convey Logistics, Bella Haven Salon and the Ashley News Observer.

Gold Buckle BBQ is registering customers now to win a Thanksgiving Dinner that will be announced during the Christmas on Pine celebration.

Other upcoming Christmas celebrations include:

-The Hamburg Holidays event and parade will be Dec. 6. The parade will began at 6 p.m.

The deadline to register as a vendor or to ride in the parade is Nov. 23.

-Christmas in Crossett will be Dec. 8 with the downtown events starting at 2 p.m. and the parade at 5:30 p.m.
