Christmas Family Night this Friday, December 9th!
Annual Christmas Family Night takes place this Friday, December 9th! The event kicks off at 6:30 p.m. with a welcome from Round Rock Mayor Alan McGraw, followed by the illumination of the street and water tower with holiday lights. Then Santa makes his grand entrance in a horse-drawn sleigh.
During Christmas Family Night, downtown historic Round Rock is decorated with small wooden houses which "house" various free games and activities. This free event includes activities for the entire family including live music, dancers, candle making, carriage rides, game booths, Frosty the Snowman, Santa Claus and more.
Children can bring their "wish lists" for Santa Claus (pictures are a nominal fee) and parents are encouraged to bring their own cameras for pictures with Santa. Plus, enjoy free hot dogs, popcorn, hot chocolate, and other refreshments, activities and snacks. Enjoy performances throughout the evening. Numerous booths will feature activities and crafts for children from cookie decorating to candle making.
Christmas Family Night is organized by the City of Round Rock Parks and Recreation Department and made possible thanks to the help of community groups and organizations that donate their services to offer this fun and free event to the community.
