Let the festivities commence

Thursday, December 2, 2021 by Tai Moses

Downtown holiday festivities will resume in person this year, with social distancing in place “so that everyone can safely enjoy the outdoor celebration,” according to a news release from organizers Downtown Austin Alliance, KUT 90.5 and KUTX 98.9. There are a variety of events planned, kicking off with the annual sing-along and tree lighting this Saturday, Dec. 4, from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in front of the Capitol and along Congress Avenue from Ninth to 11th streets. “December in Downtown” continues through the month with a screening of The Grinch at Republic Square, a Frida Friday holiday market, an Austin-centric parade by Bike Zoo, buskers, sidewalk sales, food vendors, and caroling.
