Posted at 10:17 PM, Nov 23, 2018

Downtown Corpus Christi has a festive makeover.  Chaparral Lane is now Peppermint Lane.

It’s actually a holiday tradition first celebrated back in the 1960s.  With the help of CITGO, it’s finding new life this season.

On Saturday, November 24, Chaparral Street will be closed for a kick-off celebration from 12 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.  There will be fun for the whole family, from kids crafts and rides to a holiday market pop up at BUS.  There will also be live music and a special announcement of our Battle of the Bulbs competition.   The official ribbon cutting is at 6 p.m.
