Enjoy entertainment on the Courthouse grounds, 111 E. San Antonio St., San Marcos, beginning at 5:30 p.m. with County Judge Ruben Becerra emceeing the lighting ceremony that begins at 6 p.m. The Courthouse on the Square will light up at 6:15 p.m., and Santa Claus will arrive soon after to hear all the children’s wishes while parents snap photos.
Brown Santa – the Hays County Sheriff’s Office annual gift and food drive for those less fortunate – is encouraging visitors to “Fill the Sleigh” on the Courthouse grounds by bringing an unwrapped gift for a child who might not otherwise have a present. Brown Santa will also accept monetary donations as well as credit/debit cards.
Let’s tell our deployed military personnel that we’re thinking of them during the holidays. There will be a station set up to sign a holiday card (or bring one of your own) and we’ll make sure our deployed neighbors get a holiday greeting from someone who appreciates their service.
All this follows a day of Shop Small Saturday in downtown San Marcos.
