San Angelo’s Christmas Lights to Turn on Early to Welcome Allen Eagles
SAN ANGELO, TX — The light tour along the Concho River in San Angelo will be lit up early this year, according to organizers of the Concho Christmas.
Wednesday afternoon spokeswoman Donna Donaldson announced that the lights will be illuminated as a “soft opening” to show the athletes, coaches, school officials, fans and family members of Allen, Texas how beautiful San Angelo is during the Christmas holidays. The soft opening is also to benefit family members and friends of Bobcat fans who may travel here over Thanksgiving to see Friday’s semifinal football matchup at San Angelo Stadium at 4 p.m.
Below, a short taste of what the Concho Tour of Lights is:
