I have to admit that right about now, I’ve just about had my fill of holiday-themed events and activities. Now don’t get me wrong, I am definitely not a Scrooge…really, I’m not! I enjoy this time of year as much as the next guy. But you see, my wife has a tendency to go a bit overboard, what with all of the decorating (do we really need two Christmas trees?) and baking (OK-no complaints there!) and shopping and taking in the many sights and sounds of the season. I was sure I had enough for this year. But then I heard about a new event currently taking place in New Braunfels, “14 Nights of Christmas at the Caverns”. The Natural Bridge Caverns is the largest cave open to the public here in Texas. I’ve been there before and the place is truly amazing! It is one of those destinations that you really have to see and experience for yourself to believe it, something I highly recommend at any season. But let’s get back to our current season.
For the first time ever, the Natural Bridge Caverns is putting on a Christmas spectacular, an event that sounds truly unique! The entire park is decorated in style, and in the fascinating underground caverns, they will be presenting Holiday shows and attractions such as:
- Carolers filling the resonant cave with the beautiful sounds of Christmas.
- The Journey to Bethlehem: This is a tour that I am especially looking forward to! It’s a pilgrimage to Bethlehem complete with 3-D video technology and sound effects to bring the story of Christmas to life in dramatic fashion.
- Christmas Village: Shopping, refreshments, and a 30 foot tall Christmas tree.
- AMAZEn’ Reindeer Roundup: This is where visitors go on a journey through a maze to find Santa’s lost reindeer! Got kids? They will love this!
Read about the rest of the scheduled events here.
If you are planning to go, please note that “14 Nights of Christmas at the Caverns” is only open on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights from 5:30 to 10 p.m., with additinal shows on Monday, December 22nd and Tuesday, December 23rd. That doesn’t give you much time, but if you can, try to make it. You’ll not only discover a fascinating wonderland, but you may also discover the true meaning of Christmas. See…I told you I wasn’t a Scrooge!
I want to wish you and yours all the best this Holiday Season from Tour Texas and from me!
