Van Horn holds an utterly charming holiday event, their Lighted Christmas Parade. If you haven't experienced this very special community event, do yourself a favor and head to town on Saturday, December 10 this year. The parade starts at 6:30 pm, but that's not all there is to experience in town:
Pecan Dessert Contest, 2:00 pm, at the historic Hotel El Capitan
Show and Sell, El Mercado Farmers Market, 209 W. Broadway 4-9pm (food, arts, crafts, baked goods and products)
and then, yes, the 18th Annual Lighted Christmas Parade down Broadways Street, starting at 6:30 pm!
