Austin Is The Place To Be Sunday, December 1, 2019

This Sunday is going to be a blast! There's something for everyone pretty much all day in Austin. You can start your day off with Breakfast with Santa (hosted by BSA Troop 524), then hit up the Christmas Bazaar (hosted by the Class of 2020), or swing by the Austin Volunteer Fire Department for their Christmas Auction. Don't forget to stop at the local stores and establishments as well! And save some energy to finish off your night with our Town Lighting and Cookies with Santa in the Square at 6:00 PM (Hosted by the Austin Pride Committee). That's right, the Big Guy is coming all the way from the North Pole to help us light up the town!!! The decorated trees look fantastic as is, but we can't wait to see them shine! We will have lots of Hot Chocolate and cookies! We can't wait to see you all!
