Events ring in holiday season at Colleyville

The Holiday season in Colleyville is shaping up with these two annual events.

Colleyville Christmas Tree Lighting

It’s about to get a whole lot brighter near City Hall when the Colleyville Christmas Tree lights up on Dec. 5.

Festivities begin at 5 p.m. with the mayor and City Council flipping the switch to light the tree at 5:30 p.m.

In addition to the ceremony outside of City Hall, there will be an intimate collection of games, treats and photos with Santa at the Public Library next door. There will also be carriage rides. Events run until 8 p.m.

“It has a simple, family-focused feeling to it that people seem to really enjoy,” city spokeswoman Mona Gandy said. “And the more intimate atmosphere let’s kids really get involved—from the countdown to the lights to creating a special holiday craft.”

Colleyville Lions Club Breakfast with Santa

Even the big guy in the red suit needs to eat, and families can join Mr. Clause at the annual Breakfast with Santa.

The Lion’s Club’s 19th annual event takes place from 7-11 a.m. at the Colleyville Center on Dec. 6.

Those interested can purchase tickets for $8 for a family, or $10 at the door. For advance tickets people can contact any Colleyville Lions Club member or contact the group via its website,

In addition to breakfast prepared by club members, there will be choral performances and photos with Santa for $5.

The club also ask attendees to donate a can of food or old eyeglasses at the event.
