In its 42nd year, Holiday on the Plaza is a family classic. New for 2014 we are partnering with Katy Market Days to combine Holiday on the Plaza with A Katy Old Fashioned Christmas. The events will start at 10 a.m. and the tree lighting will be held at 6:30 p.m. The official lighting of the City Christmas Tree and photos with Katy’s Santa Claus are sure to create treasured memories. The Parks and Recreation Department will have booths with holiday activities for children including letters to Santa, making your own Christmas Ornaments and Reindeer food! Photos with Santa are available for $5. The event hosts local entertainment from church and school choirs to dance teams and the community favorite Katy Tiger Mascot.
