Looking back at the Holidays in Seguin
Here in Seguin we had many events during the Christmas season. Since this holiday is one that most celebrate, this small town had a lot prepared for its residents.
All of the festivities started right as soon as December hit. We started off with the Yulefest Arts and Crafts show on December 1. Here, many people came together to put up a show of many handmade items from people around town. If you were interested in something they were showing you could’ve bought it and if it wasn’t available you were able to get some ideas for christmas gifts.
Up next on our list was the Holiday Stroll Parade, which took place on December 5, at 6:30 pm. This went down in downtown Seguin and the plaza got decorated with Christmas lights and little Christmas decorations. Along with this we had performances from the Matador band, choir, and dance team. There were many food vendors selling food and parents were able to take the little ones to get pictures with Santa. Additionally, people were able to enter a float in the parade.
Then we continued with the Sip-n-Stroll on December 6 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. You were able to take a stroll through downtown Seguin and have a taste of everyone’s homemade hot chocolate. Some of the businesses down there were open for some late Christmas shopping. There was a performance by the Seguin Star Steppers and a wiggle waggle train.
Then on December 7, we had the North Pole stroll and Jingle Bell 5k, also in downtown Seguin from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. There were organizations hosting activities for children such as cookie decorating, pictures with Santa, letters with Santa and many more things. All throughout the day there was music playing in the Central Park Bandstand, and right before the North Pole stroll, people were able to run with the Jingle Bell 5k along the walnut springs trail.
There were many more celebrations that happened here in Seguin, these are just a few. With Christmas being a special holiday for many, this small town brought in lots of visitors for all of these events!
