Highland Lakes Christmas Lights Guide
If you want to go “Where Christmas Lights Up the Night” in the Highland Lakes, pick up your free copy of the Christmas Lights Guide, available now on countertops across the Highland Lakes and inserted into mailed issues of The Picayune Magazine’s November edition.
The team at The Picayune Magazine and 101HighlandLakes.com compiled all the information you need to take part in a variety of the area’s holiday celebrations.
Find out where and when holiday lights displays will be up in Burnet, Llano, and Blanco counties. There are so many great displays, you will probably want to plan several road trips to see them all. Using our list of information, including dates, locations, and times, you can plan your own holiday lights trail through the Texas Hill Country.
“Sounds of the Seasons” gives you all the information you need to buy tickets to hear Bruce Robison and Kelly Willis’ Holiday Shindig in Bertram or see the Studio 29 Dance Centre’s take on “The Story of the Nutcracker” in Burnet, just to mention a few of the great performances planned. There’s also a high school choir concert in Marble Falls, “A Twisted Christmas Carol” at the Hill Country Community Theater in Cottonwood Shores, a Celtic Christmas, a Madrigal Dinner, the Heart of Texas Orchestra, and much more.
“Reason for the Season” tracks the live nativity scenes scheduled. One includes the entire city of Bethlehem in a re-enactment of the birth of Jesus that encompasses visitors into the action. You can walk through the streets of Bethlehem while costumed volunteers spread the good news of the Holy birth, sell their wares, and argue with Roman tax collectors.
In Burnet and Johnson City, historic holiday traditions come to life. On one night only, Fort Croghan glows with holiday cheer for a pioneer Christmas with live music and decorations. In Johnson City, President Lyndon B. Johnson’s Boyhood Home is decorated for the holidays, while you can experience a true “Frontier Christmas” at LBJ National Historical Park. There’s more, so you better grab a copy of the Highland Lakes Christmas Lights Guide for details.
In other “Holiday Happenings,” you’ll find Christmas parades, a Holiday Home Tour, a Snow Day, a Christmas tree lighting, and Christmas on the Square.
Even with all the excitement going on in the Highland Lakes, you might still find time to create your own holiday cards. Marble Falls artist Evelyn Acosta-Cone gives a step-by-step demonstration of how she and her art class are bringing back the tradition of sending personalized holiday cards to family and friends. We even included this season’s holiday stamps.
