Texas Hill Country Christmas Events 2022

Blanco County Courthouse at Christmas

It’s the most magical time of the year!

Every year I pinch myself in disbelief that we live in Dripping Springs and have access to so many incredible experiences in the Texas Hill Country!

Last night we attended the Johnson City, Texas Christmas parade around the Blanco County Courthouse and it was such a sweet event.

It felt like it was still small-town and not discovered by the masses yet.

The Austin Cloggers were there performing, horse drawn carriages with Christmas lights and jingle bells were taking people for rides and a special, nighttime parade kicked off the festive season with Santa shooting bubble “snow” behind him as the final float.

You can also walk around the PEC building and see millions of lights wrapped around their oak trees!
