Lit'l Bita Christmas brings holiday cheer to Jonesboro

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Christmas is already in the air at the A-State Convocation Center. Lit’l Bita Christmas kicked off its 29th year Friday.

There are 275 booths this year filled with a variety of items.

Event Coordinator Gina Winchester said the event has a lot to offer customers and they help support education.

“This actually goes into a general fund so that it will benefit all scholarships for all athletes and their expenses,” Winchester said.

Jonesboro resident Debbie Finley said she knows just how important that extra help can be.

“Everything is so helpful,” Finley said. “Everything is so costly. I was very appreciative when my son received an athletic scholarship, so it really helped.”

Lit’l Bita Christmas begins at 9 a.m. Saturday and lasts until 6 p.m.

It will also be open Sunday from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.
