3 Fun Reasons Why You Should Visit The Christmas Capitol of Texas
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...at Hobby Lobby!
Just kidding, I love Hobby Lobby and nothing makes me happier than singing Christmas carols out loud when they put their ornaments out in July.
Christmas is just 39 days away!!!
All joking aside, Christmas is just 39 days away, and even though we are looking at 80-degree highs this weekend in South Texas, we are forging on and getting ready for arguably the most celebrated holiday of the year.
What's happening for Christmas in the Crossroads?
In the Crossroads we have two local light-up parks, one in Cuero and one in Victoria that will be opening soon. We are launching our Light Up the Crossroads campaign sponsored by Sweetwater Energy for a chance to win $500.00 and preparations are being made for the Lighted Christmas Parade.
Even with all we have going on though, it's Grapevine Texas that's been dubbed the Christmas Capitol of Texas!
