San Angelo’s Christmas Celebration Gets Into High Gear Saturday
Christmas At Old Fort Concho, The Community Tree Lighting Ceremony, The Lights of Christmas Parade and The Tour of Lights all take place this Saturday, December 3rd!
Something I have always loved about San Angelo is the way we get our Christmas Celebration underway with numerous Christmas Season Celebrations on the same day and this year that day is This Saturday, December 3rd!!
Lets start by heading out to Christmas at Old Fort Concho which has been a tradition for many years and attracts visitors from all over Texas and numerous other states annually to enjoy so much holiday fun in this winter wonderland. There's plenty of shopping, food, entertainment, living history, special displays & activities plus much more! You can even feel as though you have stepped back in time as you experience campsites with hundreds of re-enactors and period traders who bring the 1800s to life. Troops on the Parade Ground will drill, ride, and shoot their weapons including artillery demonstrations. There is live music, a food court, children's play areas and so much more to enjoy!!
Then comes the 2022 Community Tree Lighting Ceremony which will take place at 5 p.m. on Saturday in the parking lot at the corner of Concho Ave. and S. Chadbourne St. That's another fun experience!
After the tree lighting, it's time for The Lights of Christmas Parade that will follow the ceremony at 6 p.m. with a route that takes them through Historic Downtown San Angelo.
But that's not all!! Saturday will be the second day of "The Tour of Lights" which features Christmas lights and Christmas themes in a 2.5 mile drive along the Concho River downtown and is open from 6 - 10 pm Sundays through Thursdays and 6 p.m. until midnight Fridays and Saturdays. It will be open through December 31st. Cars enter at S. Bryant Blvd. and 1st Street.
