The City of Alamo will be holding a parade this coming weekend. Alamo is “Lighting Our Way into 2021” and is asking residents and businesses to join in the fun. They are asking for participants to string lights on your home, vehicles, furniture or anything you want to light up to help be seen. Show off your creativity and then join the lighted caravan event.
The caravan will start lining up on December 12 at 5:30 p.m. at the HEB parking lot and will take off at 6:15 p.m. The caravan will end at Central Park where the city will officially light their Christmas tree.
The city is also accepting donations of new unwrapped toys for their holiday toy drive. They are asking for toys for ages three to 10. Drop off locations are City of Alamo at 420 N. Tower Rd.; Alamo Fire Station #2, 415 N. Tower Rd.; and Farmers Insurance, 501 N. Alamo Rd. B. Donations will be accepted through December 16. For more information, contact (956) 787-2117.
