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.
