We’re excited to welcome you to one of the most anticipated holiday events in San Marcos – The Sights & Sounds of Christmas! Every year this family-friendly Christmas festival brings the holiday spirit to San Martians and visitors from across Texas and beyond.
Here you’ll find popular carnival rides for all ages, a variety of delicious festival food, live performances, and even a visit from Santa Claus. All events take place amidst a sea of beautiful Christmas lights spread throughout the park. Sights & Sounds has something for everyone to help celebrate the holiday season!
There are plenty of events for families with children of all ages. A favorite attraction for younger visitors is the furry friends at the festival petting zoo. Children also have the opportunity to meet Santa at the festival and even take a picture with him.
Every year this holiday event features popular carnival rides for all ages. Kids will enjoy spinning, flying, and racing along on rides throughout the park. A full sized ferris wheel gives riders a bird’s eye view of the thousands of sparkling Christmas lights that decorate the park.
Eat, Drink, and Be Merry!
Come hungry and try the delicious food that appears at the festival. From full plates to funnel cakes, a tasty array of festival food can be found at the various stalls that line the park every day of the event. Look for vendors offering hot chocolate and apple cider while you’re there!
Sights & Sounds works with many community organizations to make the event better every year. Many groups even participate in the festival, such as local vendors and scout troops. A live nativity put on by dedicated community members is a highly anticipated attraction each year.
…And Even More!

We’re a Blue Santa Toy Collection Site
Sights & Sounds, CTMC, and Blue Santa have partnered to collect toys and wrap these toys inside the festival! Our community can instill the spirit of giving and volunteering in their children by stopping by the CTMC/Blue Santa Wrapping station right inside the main entrance and helping to wrap gifts.
It is OK if you don’t bring a gift, as guests can wrap gifts in inventory. We do, however, encourage the community to donate gifts during our 8-day festival (no stuffed animals, please value gift above $15).
Please help spread the word! Everyone who brings in a gift will receive a free cotton candy voucher!!
