SATURDAY Schedule of Events
CHILDREN'S PARADE PRESENTED BY AEP TEXAS
Santa and the Parade will begin at IH 37 and Shoreline and travel South in the Northbound lane of Shoreline Boulevard and end at the Water’s Edge Park. The spectacular view of the Bayfront makes watching the parade even more delightful. The entries will be judged and special awards will be presented later in the evening.
CHILDREN'S ACTIVITY AREA
We provide face painting and holiday activities for enjoyment. Children will be assisted by numerous volunteers in writing letters to Santa, making holiday greeting cards, and many crafts. Santa always shows up to say a special ‘hello’ to the children.
CHILDREN'S FUN ZONE
An area where children will enjoy an obstacle play zone and many other fun physical activities.
Enjoy a variety of live entertainment from church groups, school choirs and other area talent singing and performing holiday cheer for a festive day of crowd pleasing songs and special presentations.
CEREMONIAL LIGHTING OF THE TREE
Harbor Lights wouldn’t be complete without the lighting of the HEB Holiday Tree. Santa’s Snowball Express Motorcade will arrive in grand style led by festive twirlers and ending with the guest of honor–Santa Claus. The motorcade will travel down Shoreline Boulevard to the lighting ceremony. Santa, along with several special guests of honor, flip the switch and the lighting of the HEB Holiday Tree officially begins the holiday season.
Stay on for a special guest on the Entertainment Stage providing a special holiday performance!
