The city of New Braunfels is inviting citizens to kick-off the holiday season with its annual downtown lighting ceremony and the arrival of Santa Claus, according to a city news release.
Mayor Barron Casteel will “flip the switch” to officially light downtown New Braunfels on Nov. 22 at 6 p.m. Santa Claus will arrive on a vintage fire truck.
The New Braunfels Community Band will perform at 6:45 p.m. and will be followed by the Canyon High School Steel Drum Band at 7:30 p.m., the release said.
"The dazzling display of low-energy and sustainable LED lights stretches through downtown and will remain lit for the holiday season," according to the release.
During the festivities, pictures with Santa Claus and holiday treats will be available for purchase from the New Braunfels Downtown Association on the main bandstand. Photos will be digital print-only and cost $10.
