Festival of Lights

We invite you to be part of the 2022 Festival of Lights festivities. Our annual Lighted Christmas Parade is planned after the Lighting Extravaganza when 300,000 magical lights illuminate our beautifully restored historical landmark, the Lavaca County Courthouse.


This event will take place in downtown Hallettsville on Saturday evening, November 26th starting with the lighting extravaganza at approximately 5:45pm, followed by the Kiddie and Lighted parades. The day's activities begin at 10:00am with vendors, live music, and an interactive kids center and arts/crafts from 12-4. 

We hope to see you there!
