Salado Lights up for Christmas Season
Each year, the holidays come alive with the annual Christmas Stroll in beautiful, historic Salado. This year’s festivities kick off at 6 p.m. Nov. 29 with the lighted Christmas Parade beginning on Royal and continuing up Main Street followed by a tree lighting and visit from Santa at the Civic Center.
