A cold front will push through late this evening into the overnight hours and by Saturday afternoon temperatures will be about 25 degrees cooler with highs expected only in the 60s, according to the U.S. National Weather Service Austin-San Antonio.

But there’s no need to wait for seasonally appropriate temperatures to kick off a weekend of holiday cheer.

Friday

Today’s seasonally inappropriate temperatures are no obstacle at Pier Sushi, 145 FM 2673 in Canyon Lake, which hosts Christmas caroling on its patio from 5 to 7 p.m. today. Michele Herren’s acoustic band performs.

Santa and Mrs. Claus will be chilling in front of a campfire later today, from 5 to 7 p.m., at Float In, 462 E. Mill St. in New Braunfels.

At 6:30 p.m. today, children of all ages can enjoy Polar Express as part of New Braunfels Parks and Recreation’s Movie at the Park series at the Landa Park Dance Slab, 164 Landa Park Dr. Free, but bring-your-own chairs and blankets.

North Pole Village at the Community Resource and Recreation Center of Canyon Lake’s (CRRC) Rec Center, 125 Mabel Jones Dr., Canyon Lake, returns from 6 to 9 p.m. today, Saturday and Sunday.

Tickets are $5.

Each child who enters the sparkly, Christmas-themed village will receive a ‘passport’ that entitles them to shop for Christmas decorations and holiday items at a country store, ice fish, conduct science experiments with master gardeners, get a book at a library, write letters to Santa Claus at a post office, enjoy a live petting zoo, get their faces painted, decorate cookies at a bakery, and visit ‘Toyland’ to adopt a homeless stuffed animal that firefighters will provide with a ‘health check.’

Santa Claus is available for free photo opportunities although for $5 parents and guardians can purchase a photo.

Also included at North Pole Village are hayrides and concessions and a live nativity scene (two nights only).

Saturday

Coats and sweaters are in order for the Canyon Lake Noon Lions Christmas Parade, which marches down FM 2673 in Sattler/Canyon Lake at 11 a.m. Saturday.

Afterward, Santa Claus will swing by VFW Post 8800, 7755 FM 2673 in Startzville/Canyon Lake from noon to 2 p.m. Saturday to warm up with cookies, candy, drinks, and gifts for kids. Photos welcome.

Garden Ridge Market Days sponsors a Christmas Festival featuring 150 local craft, food, and farm vendors from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday. The event is at Northeast Bible Church, 19185 FM 2252, Garden Ridge. Includes food trucks, Santa Claus, Hill Country Comicon, scavenger hunting, balloons, crafts stations, games, and sand play.

Winter’s Eve in downtown Wimberley on Saturday features the charm of live music, great food, late-evening shopping.

Blanco Christmas Market at the Old Blanco County Courthouse, 300 Main St., runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and from noon to 3 p.m. on Sunday.

The Parade of Lights on Canyon Lake is canceled due to a very windy weather forecast.
