Officially, it’s the Coastal Bend holiday season.
HEB and Corpus Christi Downtown Management District hosted the annual HEB Christmas Tree Illumination Event at Water’s Edge Park on Saturday night.
Mayor Paulette Gujardo and HEB’s Regina Garcia Posada together illuminated a 66-foot tree in front of hundreds of coastal Bend inhabitants. The trees are covered with red, green, gold and white ornaments, and over 7,000 Christmas lights make the trees.
The ceremony included a performance by Mariachi Aguila and Lady Cat.
In parallel with the ceremony, representatives of the Naval Air Base-Corpus Christi collected Christmas toy donations for the annual Toys For Tots program.
The trees will be on display until January 7th.
