BURNET — The annual Christmas on the Square is right around the corner, and the Burnet Chamber of Commerce is inviting businesses, organizations and families to join in the fun on several different levels.

Christmas on the Square is Dec. 13 and includes lots of activities, including vendors and the annual Christmas parade. Anyone interested in participating in the parade needs to submit an entry application by Dec. 1.

The chamber is also inviting businesses, organizations and individuals to become a festival sponsor with opportunities available from $50 to $250. In addition to providing a day full of holiday activities, the contribution helps supply bicycles given away during Christmas on the Square.

Organizers are planning a spectacular Christmas celebration that will also include arts and crafts vendors, holiday entertainment and a visit by Santa Claus.

Parade and sponsorship applications are available on the chamber website at or at the chamber office, 101 N. Pierce St., Suite 1. Call (512) 756-4297 or email for more information.
