Old Town Rudolph Run

Our third annual Rudolph Run is a 5K, chip-timed event that starts in the heart of Old Town and tours the streets of Leander. The course is flat and fast with no hills or rough terrain.

Christmas Marketplace

Shortly after the Rudolph Run, holiday vendors will be open for business in Old Town until 9 p.m. Enjoy children's activities, live music and theater productions, crafts, food shopping and more!

Hometown Parade and Tree Lighting

Local businesses, nonprofits, community partners and city officials come together in an evening Christmas parade through Old Town Leander with a ceremonial tree lighting to follow.

Blue Santa Program

Leander Police Department, Hill Country Christmas Bureau and Leander Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association partner each year to provide Christmas gifts to those in need.
