The Annual Lighting of the Square

lighting of the squareOn November 25, come experience the magic as we kick-off the holiday season with our annual Lighting of the Square, traditionally held at 5:30 p.m. the Friday after Thanksgiving!

Mayor Josh Schroeder and Williamson County Judge Bill Gravell will help Santa flip the switch and the Uptown Carolers will then sing Christmas Carols. After the lighting, Santa Claus will be available for photos inside the courthouse in exchange for an unwrapped toy, wrapping paper or monetary donation, benefiting the Brown Santa program.

The downtown holiday lights will remain lit every evening through January 1.  This is a free event.
