For the rain to hold back on Saturday The Carol of Lights, our annual Christmas Festival, is slated for Saturday - pretty much all day and into the evening.
The Lampasas County Museum will start things off at 10am with the Christmas Tree Display & Contest which goes until 7pm, and of course there’s the famous bake sale with all kinds of goodies.
Courtyard Square will be hopping, starting at 11am with “Classics at the Classic” on the south side of the square. That will go on until 4pm, then noon-time sees the Lampasas County Higher Education Center’s “Wine Sip n’ Stroll”, and if you participate in the tasting event, you can always customize a Holiday Wine Glass at Perception Creative Art School on 3rd St.
4pm sees the “Snow Queen Pageant” for girls, kindergarten through high school, at the bandstand. There is a $20 entry fee.
The “official” Lighting Ceremony begins at 6pm at the band stand with Lampasas Radio’s Ronnie Witcher as the traditional emcee and local dignitaries on stage. There’ll also be Lampasas High Flame’s performance.
The biggie of the day, the Lighted Christmas Parade, is set to begin at 6:30pm with Grand Marshal Judy Lansford and some wonderful lighted floats. There should be a special light show, put on by an area company called “Magic Display.” That will be centered, especially in the 3rd and Live Oak area.
The parade announcing will be done along the square’s 3rd Street, by emcee Ronnie and by City Councilwoman T.J. Monroe.
It promises to be such fun, and so much preparation has been going into the festival, we hope the rain holds off!!!!
For those who want to watch… word on possible cancellation will be on the Vision Lampasas website or on their Facebook page, or of course, on Lampasas Radio and our Facebook page.
