Mayor's Update: Holiday Parade and Dec. Meeting


By: Mayor Rachel Lumpee

Join us for the annual lighted holiday parade on Saturday, Dec. 11! Businesses, organizations, and individuals are all invited to participate in the parade. There will be an announcer so you can promote your business, organization, or event while having a great time. Entry forms are due by Dec. 8; interested parties can register online at https://forms.gle/XUSopYN2ZtFFQJ219 or email mayor@cityofblanco.com for a form. The link for registering online and the printable entry form are available on our website as well, cityofblancotx.gov. Please spread the word! Staging will begin at the Blanco High School parking lot at 5:00 p.m. and the parade will start at 6:00 p.m. The parade route will include passing by Henry House, going around the square (Pecan Street, 3rd Street, and 4th Street sides of the Courthouse), and returning to the high school. Because the parade will be taking place at night, please do not throw candy or other items during the parade due to safety concerns. Special thanks to Blanco citizen, Kim Milam, who stepped up this year to help put on the parade in conjunction with the City, the Blanco Police Department, Blanco City Staff, Blanco ESD, Blanco ISD, and all the wonderful citizens for making this event possible. We cannot wait to celebrate the holiday season with the community!

The City Council regular meeting will be taking place on Dec. 7 (instead of Dec. 14) at 6 p.m. at the Byars Building. Citizens can attend in person or watch the meeting virtually via GoToMeeting; the link for the GoToMeeting will be posted on our website and Facebook page when it gets closer. The next regular meeting is still scheduled for Jan. 11 at 6 p.m. at Gem of the Hills.
