Long description

The County Courthouse is draped in lights, from the ground to the special effects lighting of the dome in a red color. Even the inside of the Courthouse is decorated. Inside the Courthouse the Johnson City Garden Club stays open until 9 pm and sells hand-crafted ornaments, decorations and gifts. Holiday music plays in the Courthouse yard area and is the central station for carriage rides. Nearby, the local Pedernales Electric Co-Op headquarters has an entire block of magnificent old oak trees strung with 1+ million lights covering the entire canopy of each tree plus white trunks, along with the stately two-story PEC HQ building. The Johnson City Memorial Park is stuffed with colorful lighted trees, figures, and presentations. The Methodist Church produces their Blanco County Living Nativity Christmas pageant every half hour beginning at 6:30 pm. The LBJ Boyhood Home will be open for lamplight tours from 6-9 pm. Special activities in the Johnson Settlement will highlight Christmas traditions from the 1860s.
