Light It Up!


For teens (13-17 years old)

Attention teens! We need your help to decorate and ride on Bastrop Public Library’s float in the Lighted Christmas Parade! Join us at the library at 3:00 p.m. to decorate the float and eat pizza. About 4:30, we’ll pile on our beautiful, shining creation and head over to the start of the parade! Your ride can pick you up back at the library about 8 p.m. (depending on traffic).

For safety, only 10 teens will be able to ride the float. Reserve your spot starting Thursday, December 2. To register, email the library at Please include the name(s) and age(s) of float riders.
