Get ready, Wacoans: Downtown Waco is gearing up for the holidays! We’re eager to have you join the celebration decked out in your most festive attire. Dive into this blog as we unveil the enchanting array of holiday activities waiting for you in Downtown Waco!
For over a decade, Downtown Waco has been the host of the ultimate festive spectacle — Waco Wonderland! Immerse yourself in the magical ambiance of Heritage Square from December 1st to 3rd. Waco Wonderland caters to every age, with the Mistletoe Market featuring Waco’s culinary gems, a charming kiddie snow hill and even a petting zoo.
Admission to Waco Wonderland is free, but for an extra dash of excitement, grab a $10 ride wristband. This pass unlocks unlimited adventures on the Ferris Wheel, Snow Tube and Kiddie Snow Tube Hill, and the trackless train! Mark December 1st on your calendar for a tree lighting ceremony, dazzling fireworks show and captivating downtown holiday parade to kick off the holiday season!
Circle December 9th on your calendar and gear up for the nation’s most epic Santa-themed bar crawl, happening in Downtown Waco from 1-8 p.m.! Get a $15 ticket which includes a pub crawl wristband, exclusive food and drink specials, DJs at select locations, digital bar lists and free access to various venues and bars scattered across Downtown Waco.
Santacon isn’t just a party. It’s a nationwide celebration where partygoers unite and clink glasses for a cause. Engage in charitable initiatives, from toy drives to fundraising efforts, as you have fun with friends and make a meaningful impact during this season of giving.
Ensure a holly, jolly journey home after indulging in holiday cheer with the responsible choice — call a safe ride home and bid farewell to any worries of post-eggnog travels! Downtown Waco advocates for a safe and joyous celebration, emphasizing the importance of steering clear from impaired driving. Let’s create a festive atmosphere that’s both brimming with merriment and committed to safety.
We look forward to welcoming you to Downtown Waco’s holiday events!
