3 Holiday Events in San Angelo

Happy Holidays

Seasonal festivities abound in central Texas. Here are a few holiday events in San Angelo, if you’re still needing some fun Christmas plans this month.

Kayak Through the Lights – Dec. 14

Take to the water while witnessing onshore lights when you participate in Kayak Through the Lights. Hosted by Kayaking Divas and Dudes, this fun event provides the perfect opportunity to showcase your decorated kayak or canoe while building memories with loved ones. Paddlers will meet behind the girl Scouts building off of 304 W. Avenue A., where participants will launch their boats into the Concho River.

Run Rudolph Run – Dec. 15

Release some endorphins and help burn off some holiday calories when you take part in the Run Rudolph Run on Dec. 15 at 5:30 p.m. This non-competitive run/walk event is open to strollers and wheelchairs to accommodate a wide range of participants. The route starts at Old Town on East Avenue B. and extends 2.5 miles through the Tour of Lights. There’s also cookies and hot cocoa if you need more incentive for donning your running shoes.

Tuba Christmas – Dec. 21

If you’re a fan of brass instruments, you’ll want to catch the Tuba Christmas concert on Dec. 21. This free performance will be held at noon at the San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts. Local tuba and euphonium players from the Concho Valley will share a program of traditional holiday songs while you sit back and soak up the soundwaves with your family or friends.

Mitchell Buick GMC wishes you and your family a Merry Christmas. And don’t forget to call us to schedule your vehicle’s seasonal service appointment, to ensure that your holiday travels are as safe as they are enjoyable.

Trick or Treat Tips for Kids

Trick Or Treat

Halloween is one of the most exciting times of the year to be a kid for a lot of reasons: dressing up, scary movies, and — of course — trick-or-treat. As we get closer to trick-or-treat time, keep these vital safety tips for kids in mind.

Driving on Halloween: While the Buick and GMC vehicles you purchase from Michell come with industry-leading safety features, trick-or-treat poses additional safety risks you must consider. Always take it slow and keep a watchful eye out for children at intersections, driveways, and even in the road.

Costume Safety: When planning your child’s costume, consider reflective or bright items to help drivers easily see your trick-or-treater. If your son or daughter has a dark costume in mind, have him or her bring a glow stick or flashlight to remain visible.

Pedestrian Pro-Tips: Have a conversation with your children before beggar’s night to discuss pedestrian safety. Make sure kids know the basics: look both ways before crossing, stay on the sidewalk, and be wary of cars. Importantly, children should know to put the cell phones and other gadgets away to avoid distractions.

Of course, the best way to ensure your child is safe during trick-or-treat is to provide adult supervision. No child under 12 should trick-or-treat alone, and older children should stay in groups.

Your friends at Mitchell Buick GMC wish your family a happy — and safe — Halloween.
