Best place in America to visit for Christmas

Best place in America to visit for Christmas

 

logo_smFew places are as festive for the holidays as the Georgetown Square.  We really do it right.  The lights.  The colors.  The beautiful architecture.  The 12′ tall Nutcracker Soldiers. All together, the Square is a magical place between Thanksgiving and New Years.

No doubt that’s why the Georgetown Square was voted “7th Best Place in America to visit for Christmas” in 2015.  Wow! No small accomplishment when you consider how many places there are in America.  That’s right:  millions.  And we’re No. 7.

This holiday season, come see for yourself how amazing the season can be — and help make us #1 in 2016!

Here’s what they said about us:

7. Georgetown, Texas, has huge wooden nutcracker soldiers dotting the streets, an annual window display competition between 18 stores for the most lavish Christmas show, and the 35th Annual Christmas Stroll through Georgetown Square’s Bethlehem Village, which is like a Christmas card come to life. You may even see the Grinch and his pals in Whoo-Village.

Nutcrackers

Nutcrackers

Standing 9 1/2 tall, 2 Nutcracker soldiers flank the 7th Street Grand Entry to the Old Masonic Lodge Building during the holiday season.  They first appeared at the building in late November, 2015, and will remain up until after the New Year.  The Nutcracker soldiers were hand-made by Christopher Damon in his shop, using wood, vinyl, styro-foam and steel rods.  Damon is Founding Partner of Damon Manriquez Partners, which owns and operates the landmark building.  The Nutcracker soldiers took over 2 years to complete.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Gumbo’s: winner of the 2012 “Winter Wonderland” category of the 1st Annual “Light up the Square” competition.

Congratulations to Gumbo’s Steak and Seafood for winning the “Winter Wonderland” category of the 1st Annual “Light up the Square” Christmas decoration contest!  The Gumbo’s Christmas decorations along the front of  the Old Masonic Lodge Building are simply stunning.  With icicles hanging from the balcony rail, garlands wrapping along the balcony columns, wreaths, ribbons and Christmas lights everywhere, the decorations are breathtaking. Couple that with the extra-ordinary lights the City of Georgetown placed in the trees, and the effect is truly “wonderous!”

The Return of the Blade Sign

The Return of the Blade Sign

After an almost 4-year hiatus, the iconic lighted “blade sign” was returned to the Old Masonic Lodge Building November 30, 2012 bearing the “Gumbo’s” corporate dress.  The sign was installed in 2006 and originally bore the logo of “Romeo’s Ristorante Italiano,”  which occupied the first two floors of the building between 2006 and 2008.   It was removed when that restaurant closed its doors for business in 2008.  The sign was originally custom created by Liberty Signs, Inc. out of Round Rock.  Liberty also refitted it for Gumbo’s.  The sign measures 10′ high and two feet wide. The lettering of the sign is illuminated.
