Watch the lights come to life at the annual lighting of the Hays County Courthouse. Kids can visit with Santa and tell him what they want for Christmas. Refreshments and music add to the evening’s fun. Representatives of Brown Santa will be on hand to collect toys, nonperishable foods and monetary donations for needy residents.
