We never dreamed of having a White Christmas at The Vineyards Campground! But we did... and the snow lasted almost two whole days... And Terri Ann and Henry show off their 5-tier snowman!
After all, its been almost 30-years in the Dallas-Fort Worth area since it last snowed on Christmas Eve. But what a perfect night for our Christmas Light contest! Hats off to Rosie and Walt for judging the contest in the freezing cold weather; you know our Camp Hosts are really awesome when they go the extra mile in a BLIZZARD to do that for us on the campground!
Winners of the 2009 Christmas Decorating Contest are: Ray and Carol Manning (sleigh and reindeer above right) from Ocean Springs, Mississippi, on Site #2, won two tickets to The Grapevine Opry at the Palace Theatre in downtown historical Grapevine; Dave and Susie Murray from El Paso, Texas, on Site #54 recieved a $50 Gift Certificate to spend at Wal-Mart; and Constance Logan from Naples, Florida, on Site #25 recieved complimentary tickets to the Gaylord Texan Resort's holiday show —"ICE." The Peoples Choice Award, voted as the favorite by campers onsite, went to Orland and Julie Butler from Heartsfield, Virginia, who received two FREE RV nights with us for their decorated RV (above left).
Congratulations and thanks to all for joining in the holiday fun. The sun out, and now that we've had our 'snowstorm'... we're ready for Spring!

Awards for Decorating will be given for Best Use of Rig, Best Texas Theme, Best Christmas Theme, and there will be a Peoples Choice Award—so stop by the office and vote for your favorite site. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all!

It's time to tap your toes and clap your hands at the grandest ol' Opry in Texas! We're trying to get a crowd together from the campground to go dowtown to see The Grapevine Opry's Christmas Spectacular in the historic Palace Theatre on Saturday night, Dec. 19. You have to order your tickets by Dec. 15, so call the Front Office ( 817 329.8993) and let us know you're coming into to camp with us that weekend and want our Special Reservation Package. One of the most acclaimed, high-energy country-western bands in the Southwest will be on stage singing their hearts out in the Christmas Capital of Texas. Boots and hats are welcomed holiday attire! Join us for some great holiday fun...
