Christmas along the Corridor
It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and there’s no better place to celebrate than the SH 130 Corridor.
From the biggest and brightest of all Central Texas holiday celebrations at Circuit of the Americas to the small-town traditions of Lockhart and Seguin, our communities offer family-friendly holiday entertainment for everyone.
Here’s what you need to know:
Circuit of the Americas
The 2nd Annual Winter Wonderland at the Circuit opened Nov. 23. The holiday carnival features the H-E-B Tunnel of Lights, Santa’s Workshop, portraits with Santa, camel rides, ice skating, a Ferris Wheel, a carousel, a giant maze and more.
Kids under 5 are free. Tickets are available online in advance or at the Winter Wonderland box office. The event runs until Dec. 30 but is not open every night. Check the COTA website for dates before you go.
Downtown Lockhart kicks off its annual A Dickens’ Christmas in Lockhart this Friday, transforming the town’s historic downtown square into 19th century England complete with favorite characters from Charles Dickens’ novels. The two-day festival includes a Christmas parade around the square on Friday, bagpipe performances, arts and craft vendors, carriage rides, appearances by Father Christmas and the annual Lighting of the Yule Log.
Seguin kicks off its annual holiday celebrations this Thursday with the Holiday Stroll Parade along Austin Street to downtown Seguin.
Downtown business will keep their doors open late on Friday during the hot chocolate Sip in Stroll, featuring horse drawn wagon rides, photos with Santa, a wiggle waggle train ride and food vendors.
The celebration continues during the daytime on Saturday with the Jingle Bell 5k and North Pole Stroll, with many activities for children in Central Park including pictures with Santa and cookie decorating. The events wrap up Sunday with the Yule Fest Market at the Seguin Coliseum. Check out the full schedule of events here.
