Christmas at the Crossroads will kick off Nov. 13, when the Uvalde Volunteer Fire Department is scheduled to erect the Christmas tree on the courthouse lawn, and conclude Dec. 10 with a milk and cookies event at the Janey Slaughter Briscoe Grand Opera House.

The lighted Christmas parade will take place Friday, Dec. 1. The parade is set to begin at 6:45 p.m. in downtown Uvalde after the Uvalde Area Chamber of Commerce posada, which will start at 6:30 p.m.

The parade is being organized by Uvalde Leader-News Newspapers in Education coordinator Olga Charles in conjunction with the city of Uvalde.

“Last year it rained, but it was still a success with more than 800 people in attendance,” Charles said. “This year will be bigger and better.”

The parade will start on Mesquite Street by the Uvalde Area Chamber of Commerce building and St. Philip’s Episcopal Church, both on North Getty Street. The parade will travel south on North Getty and conclude at the downtown square, where Santa will be available for pictures. Various booths will also be set up on the square.
