The 29th Annual Sights & Sounds of Christmas will be held Dec. 2-5 at San Marcos Plaza Park, 206 N. CM Allen Parkway.

Festival goers can enjoy unlimited admission to the four-day event with the purchase of a $7 wristband, available event website here. Wristbands will be available for purchase through Dec. 2.

“With the difficult year many of our residents have experienced—surviving an unprecedented two major floods in less than six months—we felt it was very important to give the community something to really brighten the holiday season,” said Tommy Curtis, the Sights & Sounds board of directors president. “This will be the biggest Sights & Sounds yet.”

Sights & Sounds of Christmas offers free admission to children ages 12 and under. Admission for all others is $5 per day. Purchase of a wristband will save money for anyone who attends more than one day.

The event features hundreds of thousands of lights, musical entertainment, food booths, arts and crafts, carnival rides, ice skating, A Night in Old Bethlehem, a free petting zoo and of course a visit with Santa Claus.

Entertainment highlights this year include performances by local schoolchildren; choirs; dancers; and appearances by Blue Water Highway Band, Kelsey Lewis and “A Country Christmas” with the Jason Roberts Band featuring members of George Strait’s Ace in the Hole Band and others.

San Marcos Sights & Sounds of Christmas is excited to showcase their newest attraction, Santa’s breathtaking light show. For information and a schedule of events, visit the event website here or call 512-710-9627.
