Christmas Tree

Christmas in Cuero began in 2000 with lighting of the Gazebo in the Cuero Municipal Park. It has grown to over 130 displays of Victorian, Western, Train, Gingerbread House and other scenes. Highlights are the 17-piece Nativity on the Lake Island, the 85-foot Paddlewheel Boat, Sea Serpent, "Peace on Earth" Globe, the 30-foot U.S. flag and Penguins. Santa and his reindeer fly over Lakeview Knoll while his elves are busy with gifts in other scenes. Watch Old Man Winter make snowflakes and Santa wish all a good night!

Look for the Christmas in the Park Arch at the entrance, the Twelve Days of Christmas, and the Lighthouse on the Lake's pier.
