Q. Are visitors allowed to ride bicycles or walk through the park?
A. As Cuero’s Christmas in the Park is a driving tour, for safety reasons, we discourage visitors from walking though the park during the event’s operating hours. If you choose to walk in the park, please be aware that you do so at your own risk, and we ask pedestrians to remain on the walking trail. Biking in the park during event operating hours is prohibited.

Q. How long does it typically take to drive through the park?
A. As the amount of traffic varies on different nights, so does the drive time, but the average time is about 30 minutes.

Q. Do you have horse-drawn carriage rides through the park?
A. Horse-drawn carriage rides were a feature at our event many years ago, but were discontinued and there are no plans to re-introduce them in the future.

Q. Do you accommodate guided tours and tour buses?
A. Yes, we do. Please contact us, to make special arrangements for guided tours and tour buses.

Q. How do I purchase a new scene?
A. We take orders for new scenes following the conclusion of the holiday season, generally between mid-January and the beginning of March each year, when we receive the greatest discounts from the vendors. To order a scene, or for more information, please contact Samantha Bayfus at the Cuero Development Corporation at (361) 275-8178 or ssolis@cityofcuero.com.
