All roads lead to Cuero, the Heart of South Texas.

Every Christmas take a drive through a magically lit wonderland at Christmas in the Park, from Thanksgiving through New Years. Cuero’s history can be explored year round in any of our four museums.

See you soon in the Heart of South Texas!






Christmas in the Park

Christmas in Cuero began in 2000 with lighting of the Gazebo in the Cuero Municipal Park. It has grown to over 100 displays of Victorian, Western, 12-car train, Gingerbread House and other scenes. Highlights are the 17-piece Nativity on the Lake Island, the 85-foot Paddlewheel Boat, a Sea Serpent, the Peace on Earth Globe and the 30-foot U.S. flag. 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 new Christmas in the Park Arch at the entrance. The Twelve Days of Christmas are being added yearly.

The drive through the Municipal Park is a self-guided tour with NUTCRACKERS showing the way. Donations are accepted at the end of the tour.

A live Nativity scene sponsored by the First United Methodist Church and featuring volunteers from several churches will be part of the tour from Dec. 13th through Dec. 24th.

Hot Chocolate Nights will be from 7:00-9:00 p.m. the first three Thursdays in December. The Cuero Turkeyfest will be held October 12-14, and is held annually the second weekend of October and features food, dances, a parade, entertainment for the whole family, and of course the final heat in the 'Great Gobbler Gallop' turkey race to see who gets the title of 'Turkey Capital of the World'.
