Straightening out some Christmas confusion

It… it is time…. to think CHRISTMAS!!! Every year, we have a little bit of Christmas confusion over our holiday events. Don’t worry! I am ready to save the day! I have all the deets.


  • Dickens on Main – Thanksgiving Weekend – the city coordinates this weekend, and they are still updating their website for the year. Hopefully it will be finished with more details soon.
  • Weihnachts Parade & Stocking Stroll – 1st weekend in December – the Parks & Recreation department coordinate our parade each year. Stocking Stroll is an event created by the Boerne Retailers & Restaurants in coordination with the City of Boerne as a way to raise money to pay for some of the Dickens on Main entertainment. Tickets sell out FAST! So, get ready to grab yours on NOVEMBER 1ST!
  • Toast to Olde Town – 2nd weekend in December – A merry mistletoe weekend in celebration of our olde town’s heritage. Locals (old & new) and all friends and family who are returning home for the holidays are invited to join us for a quiet stroll of downtown Boerne. There will be wassail tasting and live music and a Christmas Market at Main Plaza and SANTA!!! The Boerne Retailers & Restaurants created this event just last year to give you more opportunities to enjoy the sights and sounds and tastes of Christmas, while the folks with Boerne Market Days will host the Christmas Market.
  • Kinder Fest – 3rd weekend in December (the last weekend before Christmas!) – Bring the kids for a weekend full of Christmas fun! The Dickensian era was beautiful, but on this child friendly weekend, we will host a Santa Scavenger Hunt, Cookie Crawl, Christmas Card Booth, Cowboy Christmas Market at the Main Plaza, and SANTA!!! The Cookie Crawl tickets will go on sale November 16th. The Boerne Retailers & Restaurants will be using proceeds from the ticket sales toward funding holiday events.

Because all of these events are managed by different people with different advertising abilities, they are advertised separately. Last year, the city tried to list all four weekends on the Dickens on Main website, but everyone thought that all the weekends would be just like Dickens on Main weekend. So, they are being extra careful to rework their website.

I think the best place to be up to date on events in Boerne is the Boerne Visitor Center’s website. So, for s’more spooky fun events, be sure to visit them at

S’more Updates!

Candy corn is part of an elf’s healthy diet, after all.


We hope your day, your week, your month, and your year are blessed.

You know he knows. Wash up, kids!

We had a sweet little girl who wanted a Radko for her Christmas ornament this year. ❤️ She had never seen them before and immediately recognized that they were the prettiest ever.

We elves are pretty good at video games.

It must be because of our nimble fingers, quick minds, and Christmas cheer. Sorry, buddy. Better luck next time.

As you can see, we’ve been pretty busy this week to get ready for Rod Run! ?
