Santa's Arrival & Tree Lighting Ceremony

Santa Visits Kyle

Since 1999, Kyle has invited Santa to take part in the Tree Lighting event in downtown. The Wednesday after Thanksgiving, November 29, 2017, the City of Kyle welcomes Santa to town. Join us at City Square Park for the official Kyle Kick off to the Holidays.  Santa will be available to take pictures (you must bring your own camera, we not not have a photographer available).  School choirs from local elementary, middle and high schools will be performing holiday songs, there will be some free activities for the children, and food vendors to satisfy your hunger or thirst.  Its always a great time.  So come out and help us ring in the holiday season.
