A daily rundown of live entertainment in and around San Marcos tonight, compiled by Mercury Scene Editor Hap Mansfield and our content partners at San Marcos Tonight.
Santa’s bag is full of Christmas music and events tonight starting with River City Ballet’s Nutcracker at 7 p.m. at San Marcos High School Performing Arts Center. For a mere ten dollars you will be transported to a magical world filled with wonder, sugar plum fairies, dancing dolls and a battling mouse king. Texas Ski Ranch features music, lights and hot chocolate tonight. The Triple Crown hosts those lovable lugs from Lubbock, The Beaumonts, and their annual Hays County Food Bank drive concert. Bring a canned good or contribute some cash and listen to some boot-stompin’ hootin’ and hollerin’. Kabomba!, Henry and the Invisibles and Samantha Fish will light up the night at The Marc. Happy holiday merriment abounds!
