Bastrop Christmas Photos

Past years the downtown Bastrop businesses made Christmas Trees from recycled objects.  A person could visit the businesses and vote on their favorite.  I think the idea was to get folks in businesses they didn't normally frequent.  This year it was decided to decorate lamp poles with the recycled things.  Don't know if there was a contest or not.  Merry Christmas from Bastrop.  Here are a few photos:

 This is my favorite.

They also put scarves and hats on the sculptures around town.  I didn't get a photo of the bears by the City Hall, they were cute.

 Looking up Main Street.
This photo is Art Connections where I have my paintings.  Nice place!

I love towns that find clever ways to get people's interest. These are so creative and festive!!!

Bag Blog, I think there were more that I didn't see. I also didn't go look at the sculptures. Never enough time. We do plan to go to the river walk to see the lights Saturday night and the historic homes. Should be neat.

Joan, thanks. It does look nice.
