logo 2012 300The 2012 Christmas season is upon us with festivities beginning Thursday December 6th around 6:30 p.m. with the Lighted Christmas Parade presented by Southside Church.

The Brownwood Area Chamber of Commerce and KTAB TV present the Fourth Annual Christmas Under the Stars Festival Friday December 7th and Saturday December 8th at the Depot Plaza Complex, Adams Street Community Center, and the Railroad Museum. Be serenaded by the sounds of Christmas from local talent and community choirs while you give Santa and Mrs. Claus your wish list.

Funnel Cake, homemade chili, sausage wraps, and hot chocolate are a few of the tasty treats to try while the kiddos build crosses and decorate Christmas ornaments, cookies, and pet food bowls.

Glide around the ice skating rink then stroll to the Railroad Museum and experience Choo Choo Christmas. While you are there, support a local nonprofit and bid on a fully decorated Christmas tree, ride the mini train, and vote for your favorite Christmas photo. If you have a competitive side, enter one of several competitions such as Santa’s Sleigh 5K run, the Amazing Race, the Photo Contest, or Treats for Santa bakeoff.

Bring your four legged family members to the Depot on Saturday for the Best Christmas Pet Costume Contest hosted by the Corinne T. Smith Animal Center. We can’t forget to mention Christmas Karaoke – you know you can’t resist the urge to belt out your favorite holiday tune! With so many activities, we can’t list them all.


Start a new tradition and create lasting memories at the fourth annual Christmas Under the Stars Festival Friday December 7th and Saturday December 8th from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.
