Christmas Lights on Main Street
Before we departed Fredericksburg, Texas we wanted to experience the nighttime Christmas light decorations on the stores along Main Street and at the park on the northwest corner of Adams and Main streets. So… off we go on a nighttime auto tour of this quaint Texas town.
Traveling along Main Street reminded us of a nighttime scene out of the classic movie "It’s A Wonderful Life", starring James Stewart. Of course, there is no snow here in Texas, but the scene along Main Street waxes nostalgic about past visual celebrations of Christmas.
The town’s park featured several decorated trees with bluish-tinted lights, a tall, beautifully decorated Christmas Tree
and a tall, multi-section, rotating display of Christmas holiday characters.
As we walked through the park we discovered a small, enclosed ice skating rink. Skaters of all ages and skill levels were enjoying the thrill of gliding over the ice.
Oh how I remember that wonderful feeling so well! Instant, wonderful memories from my youth flooded my senses.
Tomorrow another adventure begins.
