The Christmas lights are up in the downtown Georgetown Square. The weather was perfect tonight, so everyone was walking around with their families taking pictures. This is a great location for that.
The BMX Pros Trick Team was most awesome this afternoon at the Red Poppy Festival. Go see them perform their bicycle stunts if they happen to be in a town near you.
The City of Georgetown as well as the cold, blowing rain came out for the Annual Lighting of the Square. There were Christmas Carols to be sung, the Mayor to be greeted, and Santa Claus to tell your Christmas wishes. I took a few photos out in the crazy cold front from the North, and then hurried over to the Monument Market to warm up with some turkey and squash chili and hot green tea with honey.
There is one major requirement for a lovely sunset – sun! After about 360 days of cold, cloudy, overcast, rainy weather in the Austin area (it seemed like that long, but I lost count), the sun finally returned to warm us up. We all thought we had moved to Seattle. Hooray sun!!! Please come back tomorrow. 🙂
This afternoon, I find myself at The Uptown Social in Georgetown. They have a groovy wrap-around rooftop terrace that overlooks the downtown square with views of the Williamson County Courthouse. I took some photos, then came in out of the 90 degree heat for a bite to eat. This is a casual restaurant and bar if you find yourself in Georgetown.
