Nearly Ten Thousand in Attendance at Magical City of Pharr Posada!


Pharr, Texas – The City of Pharr celebrated the Christmas holiday by hosting its annual Christmas Posada, which included snow, live music, food, characters, and activities designed to spread cheer to families and citizens.

“During our annual City of Pharr Christmas Posada, we bring our community together to celebrate all things Christmas,” said Mayor Ambrosio Hernandez, M.D. “This year, families were especially excited about the opportunity to enjoy snow tubing, visiting with Santa, the Grinch, and taking part in all the fun FREE activities at this year’s event,” he added.

The posada also included FREE carnival rides, pictures with Santa Claus, painting activities, a Christmas Village, delicious food, local performances by Texas Storm, VOX LIVE Band, and Pharr School District performances, among other fun activities.

Families throughout the City of Pharr and surrounding communities participated in the City of Pharr’s Posada. Downtown Pharr was packed with families enjoying the FREE event. The area was aglow with holiday lights, Christmas cheer, and smiling faces, all enjoying the posada festivities. 

The popular event of the night was snow tubing. Children and families lined up throughout the night for their turn to snow tube down the slide and into the snow pit. Everyone had a big smile after their turn down the slide!

This year’s Posada was a great success with over 10,000 attendees. Each year the event gets bigger and bigger. Thank you to all who joined us from near and far for this year’s posada festivities!

“Our community had a great time at the event and we thank everyone who joined us in Pharr for the Christmas Posada,” Mayor Hernandez continued. “On behalf of the City of Pharr, we wish you all a Merry Christmas!”
