November 29th, 2017 by Susan Lopez

Brenham Texas Christmas Celebration fills the month of December 2017.  For such a small town Brenham can sure pack a punch in December!  There is wonderful shopping in historic downtown for all of those special people in your life.  Don’t forget to go by the Jingle Bell Market Saturday 10-7pm at the Ant Street Inn.  Avoid the crowds.  Enjoy a simpler time with happy people who remember what Christmas is really about.  There are great restaurants to enjoy as the days progress.  Saturday, December 2 is the Christmas Stroll and Lighted Parade.  The Lighted Parade starts at 7:00 pm.  You can be anywhere on the square and see the lighted floats as the beautiful floats go through the downtown.  The parade finale is Santa Claus on the firetruck.  Check out the Brenham House Bed and Breakfast if you need a place to stay while enjoying all of the fun!
