Christmas Lights in Angelo

Each year, Donna and I look forward to viewing Christmas lights. We were happy to be in San Angelo at this time of year so that we could view the lights around town, but specifically along the Concho River near downtown.

There is a website -- the Concho Christmas Celebration -- devoted to Christmas activities around the area. Be sure to check out the Gallery page for the Tour of Lights photos.

The tour of lights begins on River Drive at West 1st Street just west of the downtown area. It continues along River Drive, which parallels the Concho River downstream, to South Irving Street. The tour then turns north on South Irving for a block, then east along Concho Street for 2 blocks through the historic downtown section, then turns south on South Oakes to finish in the Farmers' Market pavilion across from historic Ft. Concho.

There are numerous lights along the river, but the focus is on lighted images taken from the "12 Days of Christmas" song. The lighted reflections shimmering off the river are lovely. A donation of $5 per car is requested to help continue funding the project.

Below are a few pictures we took last night, but much better pictures reside at the site linked above.

I wish all of you a Merry Christmas and a new year filled with peace and joy.

Note the reflection in the river
