The Christmas Under the Stars Festival will be held at the Depot Plaza Complex and Lehnis Railroad Museum in charming Brownwood. There, you’ll find holiday crafts to keep the kids entertained, a giant inflatable snow slide, and Big Wheel races. Don’t miss out on your chance to visit with Santa Claus while you’re there (and put in a good word for your Christmas wish list).

If you know of a kid (large or small) who is a train fanatic, no trip to Brownwood is complete without a visit to the Lehnis Railroad Museum. For the Christmas Under the Stars Festival, the railroad museum will feature holiday train demos, live entertainment, and mini train rides. Round out your visit to the area with a horse-drawn carriage ride, as you take in the glittering lights of historic Brownwood.
