Reindeer, snow slide among attractions
Tomorrow, Christmas at the Crossroads will be held downtown from 6-10 p.m. It will consist of the lighted Christmas parade put on by Newspapers in Education beginning at 6:30 p.m.
Organized by Uvalde Leader-News NIE coordinator Olga Charles in conjunction with the city of Uvalde, all area schools are invited to participate in the parade, which will feature live reindeer and an appearance from Santa Claus.
The parade route will travel south on North Getty Street from Leona Street and conclude at the downtown plaza.
Santa Claus and walking participants will turn right on North Street, in front of the opera house, while floats and other vehicles will turn right on West Main and continue to High Street.
Ready to meet parade-goers at the plaza will be food booths, an opportunity for pictures with Santa, and live reindeer petting. There will also be a snow slide for the children from 7-9 p.m.
“It’ll be fun,” said Charles. “Last year, we had about 3,000, and it just keeps growing. We want everybody to be happy about the holidays that are coming up.”
“Breakfast with Santa” at the Janey Slaughter Briscoe Grand Opera House annex will be held Saturday at 9 a.m. Tickets for the breakfast are $5.
Next on the entertainment lineup is Uvalde Good Egg Enterprises’ “Prickly Pear Flats Poinsettia Pageant and Pfandago” theatrical presentation, to be held at the Janey Slaughter Briscoe Grand Opera House also on Saturday. Reserved seating tickets for the 7:30 p.m. show are $15.
“It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play” will run Dec. 6-8, beginning at 7:30 p.m. each night, at the opera house. Based on the beloved film classic, the play will feature live sound effects made by the actors onstage. Tickets are $15.
