It’s a tradition. Families from around Parker County will converge in downtown Weatherford to enjoy a day full of fun, festive activities as the Weatherford Chamber of Commerce host to the annual Christmas on the Square Holiday Celebration in Historic Downtown Weatherford.
The Annual Christmas Parade will kick off the festivities on Sat., Dec. 3 beginning at 10 a.m. at the Weatherford Ninth Grade Center. The parade route will then make its way up South Main, around the Courthouse, head west on Palo Pinto Street and pass by Cherry Park.
Tammy Gazzola, chamber president, invites folks to come enjoy the small town charm of Weatherford and immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of the season. She suggests attendees take advantage of the great shopping and special treats available in the downtown stores. Hot chocolate, cupcakes, cookies and candy canes are just a few of the goodies that you will find around every corner. Businesses and organizations will be thanking the community for their support throughout this year by handing out all kinds of samples and delicious nibblings. Many of the vendors and stores will offer special prices and sales, so you can stock up on Holiday gifts while you enjoy the festive atmosphere.
There will be lots of fun, family-friendly activities for all to enjoy. Take a minute to sit back and enjoy the live entertainment stages that will showcase holiday music and talents. Kids will love the activities in the Kids’ Area, the mini-train rides, inflatables and roaming Christmas characters like the Grinch and Gingerbread Man.
Many of the downtown merchants have special activities planned for this festive day! Peacock Feed will have Cowboy Santa, Short Chef Bistro will host Mrs. Claus and The Texas Opry will have a special show at 4 p.m. with Vince, Vance and the Valiants. Lots going on downtown.
