Brenham is that perfect small town atmosphere at Christmas! We decorate downtown with thousands of lights to greet you as soon as you turn the corner and on one special night of the year we keep our doors open late, greeting people with smiles, hot cider, and homemade goodies.
At 6pm we line the streets to watch our festive lighted parade complete with music, kids, horses, and Santa! Afterward we mingle in the streets, tour the Gingerbread Houses, enjoy live entertainment & dance, listen to the tuba band play Christmas carols, and peruse through all the many shops – you’re sure to find something special for that someone special! Santa hangs out all evening at Hermann’s Furniture Co to take pictures with the little ones.
