SALADO, TX (KXXV) -

The 2016 Salado Christmas Stroll kicked off Dec. 1, but continues to have events the weekend of Dec. 9-11. 

Salado is full of joy and Christmas cheer as the town prepares to welcome thousands of visitors to the annual stroll.

For local store owners the Salado Christmas Stroll is something to be thankful for. 

"It is the two largest weekends of the entire year. We really kind of gear up all year for this. You know it's just about family and supporting small, local businesses in our little village," Lara Tracy, the owner of The Shoppes on Main, said. 

"We get thousands of people come thru our store and throughout the town on both weekends -- Friday, Saturday and Sunday," James Ruesch, the owner of Strawberry Patch, said.

Live music, good food and shopping, and numerous events for visitors to attend can be found in the Village and throughout the many establishments and shops up and down Main St.

A few of the featured events are:

  • Historical Society Tour of Homes
  • Live Nativity 
  • Tablerock Amphitheater 
  • Central Texas Area Museum
  • The Salado Christmas Adventure Game

Although the Christmas Stroll brings new people to Salado, local store owners recognize familiar faces year after year. 

"This is where they raised their kids, and now they're bringing their grandkids. You grow up with these families," Tracy added.

According to the Salado Chamber/Tourism Bureau, Salado is a destination for a thriving creative arts and business community with an emphasis on providing visitors a unique shopping, dining and lodging experience. 

A "Grand Calendar" of events can be found at www.salado.com or by visiting the Salado Visitor Center at 831 N. Main St.
