Fun Holiday Events in Aubrey (and surrounding areas)!
Let’s start with the really fun stuff! After all, the holidays don’t last long, and you want to take advantage while you can! Don’t forget to post all those photos of you and the kids enjoying yourselves to Instagram so that you’ll remember the fun you had well past the end of the holiday season!
The folks of Aubrey have already kicked the holiday season off by enjoying a Small-Town Family Christmas with World Famous MOMS at Veterans Memorial Park. Santa was there, too, and everyone enjoyed seasonal goodies, getting some holiday shopping done, and even making ornaments to decorate their tree at home! It was fun for the whole family!
Santa’s been awfully busy making all these appearances, so for a special reading at Patios At the Rail, he had to hand the reins over to Matty the Elf. Many joined Matty for a magical Up on the Rooftop Reading with cookies and hot cocoa on Saturday, December 11. Truly a one-of-a-kind event!
