The Bandera Business Association (BBA) is once again hosting the Cowboy Capital Christmas in Bandera this Friday and Saturday, Dec. 4-5 and will include the Shopper’s Jubilee, though COVID-19 concerns may cancel the parade.
”We’re hopeful that the Cowboy Christmas Parade will take place once again,” said BBA President Cindy Beckham. “We are monitoring the event for safety concerns.”
Activities on Friday will include the Shopper’s Jubilee, when many Bandera merchants stay open late, from 4:30 to 8 p.m., offering time for locals and visitors to shop and enjoy the holiday spirit.
In addition to shopping, holiday music, choir visits and street musicians, the public can enter a ticket for $25 purchases at participating merchants and have a chance to win Saturday afternoon at 4 p.m. annual drawing for $100, $200, or $300 cash on the Bandera County Courthouse lawn.
“If any events must cancel, we will post on Facebook pages for Bandera County Chat and Bandera Business Association,” said BBA President Cindy Beckham.
COVID-19 safety guidelines are still in place during the Shopper’s Jubilee and parade. The BBA encourages everyone to distance six feet, wear a mask or face covering, and sanitize often. No candies or sharing of food / trinkets are allowed during the festivities, Beckham said.
“We hope all of our Bandera residents and guests have a wonderful time, and enjoy the spirit of Christmas in Bandera,” said Beckham.
Update: The parade has been confirmed as cancelled. https://www.facebook.com/BanderaBusinessAssociation/posts/1769471869881688
