We’ve got TWO opportunities to win tickets to amplify your light-seeing experience this holiday season! With all the glittering displays of Christmas lights throughout Boerne, you could make an entire weekend out of visiting each of them. You’ll have stars in your eyes at the sight of them—we feel certain of that. Enter to win, and don’t miss out!
In addition to our famous Dickens on Main 20th anniversary event on November 29th and 30th this year, Boerne’s Hill Country Mile is already brightly lit and dressed up for the holidays and invites you to take a night drive down Main Street. Our trees and light poles are beautifully decorated, and each storefront is lit in their own special way. Downtown Boerne is a sight to see this time of year, and we highly recommend incorporating it into your nighttime commute around town to really get you into the holiday spirit!
More than 3 million lights will flick on out at Enchanted Springs Ranch starting Thanksgiving night. The old west town has some exciting new features this year. You won’t want to miss the synchronized light show coordinated by the famed Hinojosa Family (they are known for their own show featuring Selena and the Baby Shark Song) and playing a game of laser tag in the lights!
ENTER TO WIN: Four tickets for any night during the 2019 season, four games of laser tag among the lights, as well as, a session in the Christmas Escape Room for four players. To make it even sweeter, Old West Christmas Light Fest is including two passes to join in on one of their Christmas Cookie Decorating classes (Dec. 1, 5, 8 or 19), where you'll learn to decorate cookies like a pro! You’ll get to take your creations and the recipe home with you to make more cookies and impress your family and friends over the holidays.
It’s back and better than before! Come out starting Thanksgiving night for the 5th Annual Don Strange and Elite Lighting Designs Christmas Lights Spectacular. Join them for a month-long celebration of family, friends, and neighbors with BRAND NEW displays, interactive carriage and hayrides, food galore, and Christmas shopping—all in one place. Christmas on the Ranch boasts over 3 million dazzling lights, dozens of movable displays, and family fun for the whole Christmas season!
ENTER TO WIN: A private hayride is up for grabs at this year’s Christmas on the Ranch! When you win, gather a party of 15-20 people for a trek through the trail of twinkling lights all the way up to Santa’s Village. Then shop, eat and explore before hopping back on to finish the evening with your loved ones!
The festive Weihnachts Parade is one of Boerne’s greatest Christmas traditions and has been bringing joy to children of all ages for the last 33 years! Bring the whole family for a memorable light drenched parade on the evening of Saturday, December 7th. Every entry is covered in lights and includes a musical component. Come out early to scout out your favorite viewing location along the Hill Country Mile as this is the most popular Boerne parade of the year!
Bundle up and hop in the car with family and friends and enjoy the light shows around town. The Boerne Parks and Recreation Department has made scouting for lights easy! Businesses and residents enter the annual parade of lights contest, and the Parks Department compiles a MAP to visit all the properties eligible for entry in the Parade of Lights. Some of last year’s entries even made regional and national news with their lights and choreographed displays (Hinojosa Family)!
