We will be handing out fun crafts you can do from home (while supplies last) and don't forget to bring those self-addressed letters to Santa telling him what you would like this Christmas season, and he just might write you back! The first 50 cars to show up decorated for the holidays will receive a special prize!
As the sun sets, all of Grapevine's holiday spirit comes to life with a heartfelt video from the Mayor and all the Christmas lights in Downtown Grapevine will turn on for the six week Christmas season! We hope to see you there all season long!
