Victoria's Best Kept Christmas Secret Revealed

Right on the corner of Mallette and Blyth sits an acre and a half of land once considered just part of the countryside of Victoria. Joy Pittman and her best friend Debbie Stephens have spent over a decade making something truly unique for Victoria, creating Victoria's Christmas Wonderland, undoubtedly, Victoria's best kept Christmas secret.

Cut your family Christmas tree with the kids!

Did you know you can cut your own Christmas tree up the road from Victoria? It's at a place just outside of Luling called Abrameit’s Tree Farm. You can choose and cut your very own Virginia Pine Christmas Tree, it's a pretty cool way to get this year's Christmas Tree. If you prefer you can choose a precut Fraser, Noble, Nordman, or Douglas Firs!

Cut Your Own Christmas Tree

Speaking of trees, don't forget to drive downtown Victoria this weekend to enjoy the beautiful Christmas tree next to DeLeon Plaza. Park and enjoy the Christmas tree outdoors. The weather should be perfect!

Take a night drive to Cuero to see Cuero's Christmas in The Park. 

Cuero's Christmas in the Park will run through New Year's Day. Park hours will be nightly from 6:00 PM through 10:00 PM. We are planning to go tonight, so we hope to see you there! This is one event my kids look forward too, even as adults now!
