LaGrange Christmas in the Country event is held each year on the weekend before Thanksgiving. The fund raising event for the park began several years ago as a Christmas Open House; with natural, hand-made decorations reflecting olden days. Today, the Open House Event has turned into much more: folks come early to purchase homemade baked goods for their Thanksgiving table, enjoy hay rides to the old LaGrange Cemetery, make family pictures for their Christmas cards, purchase craft items and talk with Santa. The event is Free.
