Tour of Lights

Concho River

6:00 PM

This year “Concho Christmas Celebration” proudly hosts the 28th Annual Tour of Lights. What began as a short walking tour of lights, in the El Paseo de Santa Angela area, has grown into a 2.5 mile drive along the banks of the Concho River with more than three million lights and seventy Christmas Greeting Cards.

This year, the Tour of Lights season begins with a soft opening on Friday, December 4th and continues every evening through Thursday, December 31st. Cars enter at Bryant Blvd. South and 1st Street (the street north of the Main Post Office), 598 W. 1st. Street. The Tour of Lights is open from 6:00 to 10:00 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and from 6:00 p.m. to Midnight, on Fridays and Saturdays. A donation of $5 per vehicle is suggested.

The Tour of Lights encompasses animated scenes depicting the The 12 Days of Christmas, a Toy Factory, a Gingerbread House, an elaborate nativity scene, a National Patriotism Flag, Santa Claus and much, much more!

The beautiful poinsettia field light display, located at the San Angelo Convention & Visitors Bureau building, continues to be a family favorite. The poinsettias are displayed in such a way as to enhance their beauty, and the hillside position gives them a life-like appearance. We are continuing our LED light phase-in program through the Illumination Sponsorship of Reliant and our in-kind sponsorship with Westlake Hardware.

The Live Nativity sponsored by First Christian Church has been canceled this year, but the manger scene with silhouettes will be on display during the Tour of Lights.

MICKY & The MOTORCARS

The House of Fifi DuBois: 123 S. Chadbourne St.

9:00 PM

The Braun brothers never stopped. Big brothers Cody and Willy started Reckless Kelly, and Micky and Gary left Idaho for Austin and started Micky and the Motorcars, a road-dogging favorite whose nonstop tour for the last 17 years has defined not just the lives of the brothers, but also shaped Austin’s roots-rock resurgence that has played out over the last two decades. With their anticipated new album Long Time Comin’, the Motorcars cement their place as elder statesmen of that alt-country scene who have managed to master that ever-elusive blend of artistic familiarity and surprise.

For the Motorcars, the question is never really whether to tour but where to play next. Gary––who handles guitar, mandolin, harmonica, harmonies, and occasionally lead vocals––and Micky, lead vocalist and acoustic guitarist, are joined in the Motorcars by Joe Fladger on bass, Bobby Paugh on drums and percussion, and new bandmate Pablo Trujillo on guitar. The combination of familiar and fresh players has reinvigorated the Motorcars’ live show, which buzzes through a low-key rock-and-roll rapture built on grooves and the Brauns’ signature harmonies.
