The Lighting Up Llano event will take place at sunset (6 p.m.). One lucky kiddo, the winner of the annual coloring contest, will get to flip the switch and light up the sky with beautiful lights and colors. Did we mention that Santa will be there? He will arrive via firetruck! After all the oohs and aahs, you will want to stick around for the Christmas Parade that will immediately follow.

The Lighted Christmas Parade, happening from 6-7 pm and hosted by the Chamber of Commerce, will begin at the Senior Center and line up down Berry Street. This will be a parade like none other. Happening just after sundown, the dark night sky will be lit up by thousands of twinkling lights on floats. Dress in your coziest clothes and come experience this once-a-year Christmas showcase.

End the night with a movie that everyone should see at least once, but really, yearly: It’s a Wonderful Life. Beginning at 7:30, just after the parade, make your way to the Lantex Theater and watch the movie on the big screen. Here you can warm your hands, but also your heart, with this classic movie that reminds us of the important things in life.

The following week, you won’t want to miss the Llano Snow Day. While snow isn’t a naturally occurring phenomenon during most times of the year in the Hill Country,  you might be fooled on December 8 when a snowy scene comes to life. Complete with sleds and rumors of a newly added water feature, families and kids of all ages will want to come experience the colder side of Llano. Wristbands can be purchased for the event happening from 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. that day.
