Christmas in Cuero began in 2000 with lighting of the Gazebo in the Cuero Municipal Park. It has grown to over 300 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.
