Tree Lighting December 3 and Holiday Under the Stars December 4 will continue as planned.
The 58th annual Killeen Christmas Parade that was scheduled Saturday, December 12, from 6 to 8 p.m. in historic Downtown Killeen has been canceled.
The ongoing pandemic limited the number of parade entries received resulting in the decision to cancel the parade.
Mayor Jose Segarra will light the 50-foot silhouette Killeen Christmas Tree at 6 p.m. Thursday, December 3, at Killeen Community Center. The public is invited to drive in, park and watch from personal vehicles.
Holiday Under the Stars is Friday, December 4, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Lions Club Park Hike & Bike Trail. Lighting displays will line the trail and holiday music will fill the open air. There will be food trucks, hot cocoa and treats. The event is free to enter.
The City is collecting Letters to Santa through December 15. Boys and girls can write their wish lists or other messages to Santa, and our City elves will make sure he gets them at the North Pole in time to write back. Letters can be dropped in Santa’s mailbox at the Family Recreation Center or mailed to Santa at:
c/o Killeen Family Recreation Center
1700 E. Stan Schlueter Loop
Killeen, Texas 76542
