Planning to spend the holidays in the Texas Hill Country? Here are some of our favorite events:
Dickens on Main (Boerne, November 27th & 28th): horse-drawn carriages, live performances, holiday shopping, children’s activities and more!
Chamber Light the Night Christmas Parade and Holiday Village of Sharing (Fredericksburg, December 4th): See Fredericksburg’s historic Main Street awash in the glow of this illuminated holiday night parade. Bleacher seating is available for purchase; other seating is free. Enjoy wine and food along with free activities. Other events throughout the season may be found on the website as well.
Son’s Island (located about an hour from our Bandera resort, in Sequin) is a wonderful place to spend a day in the Texas Hill Country! Rent a lakeside cabana for the day, go kayaking and paddle boarding, and enjoy the beauty of this special area. Each island cabana has a private floating dock, and some cabanas are located directly on the water. You can also swim, play beach volleyball, enjoy some BBQ and more! Although Son’s Island is located outdoors, for the safety of their guests and employees they are currently limiting capacity to 50%, and limiting groups to no more than 8 people per cabana. With the abundant space and sunshine, it’s easy to stay distanced from other guests.
Check their website for more information and fabulous photos of this beautiful area!
Ford Holiday River Parade (November 27th): Come to San Antonio’s River Walk for this special event. Tickets are available here, or free seating is available on a first come basis (bring your own chairs!).
Dickens on Main (November 29-30th): One of the most-loved events of the season, the 20th Annual Dickens on Main is held in the historical downtown of Boerne. Two days of family fun include a tree lighting ceremony, horse-drawn carriage rides and a chance to start your holiday shopping in the local shops. Don’t miss the concert held Saturday night!
