ACU's Mingle and Jingle Christmas celebration took place Sunday night.

The event featured several free holiday activities including a visit from Santa.

Entry was free but families were asked to bring an unwrapped new toy for Abilene's Christmas on the Street Gift Drive sponsored by Love and Care Ministries.

Crowds gathered on the front lawn of the biblical studies building to admire the holiday decorations and to watch a showing of the Grinch stole Christmas.

The highlight of the evening  was an acoustic Christmas concert featuring country star Aaron Watson.
