Strolling In Georgetown...Christmas Celebrations that Remind Me Why I Love my Hometown

Real Estate Agent with The House Company Galveston Texas

What a fine day it was for the 29th Georgetown Christmas Stroll.  This celebration still has all the charm of a small town spontaneous parade combined with many many hours of volunteer planning making for the best Christmas Celebration in Central Texas.    georgetown texas  A huge crowd turned out filling the streets with families and strollers.  There were plenty of booths of crafts to browse   georgetown texas   and lots of good eats too.  My favorite is the kettle corn.     georgetown christmas stroll  and how could not stop and listen to the singing nuns?  Inspirational and funny too!    christmas in Georgetown Tx  But the best part is the stroll itself.  What started out as a casual small town event of local neighbors in Christmas costumes walking the downtown square with their pets    christmas strollhas evolved into a major parade with floats and entries continuing for blocks.  Patriotism was a popular topic this year  christmas strolland my favorite entry was the Cub Scouts with their soapbox derby cars.  As a former CubScout pack leader I can remember the joy of corralling 30 eager CubScouts.   georgetown texas parade  I love the the tank.. another scout had a version complete with missles.. I wouldn't want to mess with him.   parade float and what would a small town Texas parade be without Indians????   georgetown texas parade  and at the tail end of the parade is Santa.. his sleigh is pulled by a motorcycle.. you don't think we have reindeer in Texas do you?   georgetown texas parade

Hello Mike - We enjoyed our time at the Stroll yesterday.  The kids had a blast and we'll be sure to attend next year.  We've been in georgetown 3 years now and this is the first year we attended.  Thanks for the pictures as we missed the parade!

Glad your family enjoyed the Stroll.  The first time I visited Georgetown I happened upon the Christmas Stroll and fell in love with the town and the people.  Be sure and take the family to San Gabriel Park on the 4th of July for another Georgetown celebration!
