To kick off the Christmas season, the City of Mont Belvieu has illuminated the replica historic oil derrick at A.B. Davis Plaza inside the City Park, which will remain lit for the holidays. 

Movies Under the Stars 

The city’s Movies Under the Stars in December will be a holiday edition with a presentation of “The Grinch.”  The animated feature film will hit the big screen at City Park at 6:30 p.m. Dec. 7. Arrive early to get a great seat in front of the city’s giant outdoor screen and enjoy food and treats from the city’s on-site food vendors. 

Theatre in the Park 

Stage Door Inc. and the City of Mont Belvieu are partnering for the first time to bring Charles Dickens’ classic holiday tale, “A Christmas Carol,” to the stage at City Park.  Performances will be at 7 p.m. on Dec. 13 and 14. 

“Partnering with Stage Door and being part of this production is a great way for us to bring new programming into City Park,” Dustin Schubert, parks and recreation director, said. “We have a wonderful stage out there and we want to make the most of it. I can’t wait for our residents to come out and enjoy ‘A Christmas Carol’ in the park with their families.”
