7th Annual Waco Wonderland: Join us December 6-8 at Heritage Square in downtown Waco for a celebration of food, fun and cheer during Waco Wonderland!  The celebration kicks off at 5 p.m. on Friday, December 6 with the opening of the Ferris Wheel, live music, food/art vendors and visits with Santa. A tree lighting ceremony and firework show concludes the first evening of holiday festivities.

On Saturday, the Communities in Schools Wonderland Run will begin at 8 a.m., followed by the Family of Faith Worship Center Holiday Parade at 10 a.m. in downtown Waco. Additional activities, such as the Snow Tube Hill, open Saturday afternoon through Sunday evening. Admission to Waco Wonderland is free. For information and a complete festival schedule, follow Waco Wonderland on Facebook or visit wacowonderland.com.


Temporary Riverwalk Closures: Portions of the Riverwalk will be temporarily closed throughout the upcoming weeks as installation begins on more than two dozen Waco "Sculpture Zoo" animals commemorating the Cameron Park Zoo. The closures will take place from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays only. Impacted areas will include sections of the Riverwalk along University Parks Drive, between Washington Avenue and the back entrance of Cameron Park Zoo. We appreciate the public's patience during this project and will keep you updated on progress.
