Candy Cane Lane starts the fun this Saturday evening with live music, food trucks, Santa, and of course, plenty of festive lights.

More homes in the Schanen Estates neighborhood have joined the tradition.  Candy Cane Lane is free to the community because the costs are incurred by the homeowners who set up the displays. This year, organizers have added a component to the annual event.

In support of the Young Heroes of the Guard, organizers encourage visitors to bring toys for patients at Driscoll Children’s Hospital.  Toys can be dropped off at 6022 McAlpin Dr and on O’Malley St.  Soldiers are set out front.

The goal is to collect 1,000 toys this year. Candy Cane Lane will also have collection sites for blankets for the homeless, as well as other fundraisers throughout the neighborhood.

The Candy Cane Lane Celebration starts at 6 p.m. on Saturday, neighbors are asking the community to park away from the streets and walk, scooter or Uber/Lyft to the neighborhood lights.

This year there will also be live music from a Houston-based band, TJ Funk Band. Many sponsors helped make this celebration come together, Accurate Welders and Inspections,Skip Entertainment and EAS Resources, INC.

This year, on December 18th there will also be a Jingle Bell Lighted Bike Parade between 6-8 p.m.

All events are FREE and OPEN to the public.
