Special Notice: We regret to announce that the Cuero Police Department has notified us that a burst water pipe has required the emergency closing of E. Courthouse Street and Cuero Municipal Park.

If any further information becomes available, we will post it at that time, and we apologize for the inconvenience.

Santa and his reindeer fly over Lakeview Knoll while his elves are busy with gifts in other scenes. Watch Old Man Winter make snowflakes and Santa wish all a good night!
