It’s that time of year again……shopping, presents, Christmas music, Christmas lights, celebrating with family and friends, going to church and celebrating our Saviors birth, Christmas Cantatas, travelling to visit loved ones, great feasts and parties, more shopping and of course, the Christmas Stroll in Downtown Brenham!
The Christmas Stroll fun, which marks the beginning of the Christmas season in Brenham, Texas kicks off on Friday, December 6. 2013 in Downtown Brenham with activities for the whole family.
The Christmas Stroll is Brenham’s way to kick off the Christmas Season with sights and sounds that delight young and old alike. It takes flight with the lighting of the Courthouse Square Christmas trees and is followed by the Downtown Parade of Lights. This light-filled, old-fashioned parade winds through the streets of downtown and finishes with a special appearance from Santa Clause arriving on a fire truck.
After the parade, stroll the downtown shops for unique gifts and warm cider and cookies. The Farmer’s Market will be open with mouth watering treats, handmade crafts, and other vendors. A holiday shopping adventure awaits you at the Jingle Bell Market.
The Christmas Stroll this year marks the addition of an ice skating rink open for everyone of any age who enjoys being adventurous! The skating rink opens for your skating enjoyment on Friday, December 6 from 4 to 10 pm and again on Saturday, December 7 from 10 to 4 pm. So come prepared to strap on those skates and give the rink a whirl!
While downtown for the Christmas Stroll, enjoy holiday music provided by Tuba Christmas, the wonderful free Gingerbread Home Tour (which benefits Habitat for Humanity!), the Jingle Bell Market, a colorful lighted parade, and downtown Brenham where buildings and shops glow with lights and holiday cheer.
Return to Murski Homestead Bed and Breakfast for a romantic and relaxing visit to the outdoor spa. With almost 100 jets and enough luxurious seating to hold up to seven people, it truly is the perfect end to a day of holiday fun! We will provide the towels for you. All you need to do is grab your swimsuit, slide in and unwind. Your visit to the spa, combined with our comfortable accommodations, will have you sleeping like a baby. Get a good night’s rest before waking up to head back downtown for more fun on Saturday during the Christmas Stroll.
The Pet parade gets things rolling once again on Saturday, December 7 at 10 am, in Downtown Brenham, plus more of all the great things you enjoyed on Friday when the Christmas Stroll kicked off the holiday season. Don’t Forget to enjoy the Santa’s Secret Scavenger Hunt! All day Friday, December 6th and Saturday, December 7th, enjoy participating in an adult-minded scavenger hunt where answering mystery questions could lead to winning a huge gift basket filled with goodies and gift cards! Local Shoppers will be given a scavenger hunt sheet with questions they have to answer at all participating venues downtown. Downtown is the perfect place to shop for all those Christmas gifts and stocking stuffers.
