This year took the family to Dickens on Main in Boerne, TX...if not familiar with Dickens on Main in Boerne it is a two night celebration to kick off the Christmas and Holiday Season after Thanksgiving where Main Street is closed off and filled with all kinds of enjoyment. You can find things all across the board, from:

  • Christmas lights
  • Food Vendors
  • Beer and Wine
  • Christmas Carols
  • Petting Zoo
  • Pony Rides
  • Snow Machines
  • Christmas Tree
  • Theatre Shows
  • Old Fashion Horse and Carriage Rides
  • Local Restaurants
  • Music
  • Arts and Crafts
  • Shopping, lots of shopping

Overall it is a great opportunity to support the local Boerne Community while getting in the Christmas spirit and shop local! There is enough to do and see to keep busy for hours, including plenty of Kid activities. One thing I would mention is parking that you need to plan for...there isn't any really set parking it is mostly first come first go along the near by streets close to main street all around. Unless you get there early I would plan for a bit of a hike from where you might have to park so plan accordingly with a wagon or stroller if have small children. Once there on main street the roads are blocked off so space isn't too big of an issue to get around and enjoy even as the crowd starts to grow bigger and bigger into the night.
