Every second Saturday is Hit the Bricks in downtown Tyler, and next Saturday, December 8, is no exception. 'Tis the season, so you can expect seasonal flair and holiday-oriented fun as downtown businesses and venues come alive—both on and off the square.

December's Hit the Bricks starts at 11 a.m. and continues throughout the day on into the evening. Activities range from your kids meeting Mrs. Claus at The Goodman Museum and making snow in the Tyler Public Library, to the Heart of Tyler's Art Walk and "Deckin' the Halls with Buddy Holly – A Rockin' Blue Christmas” at Liberty Hall.

The “Blue Santa Pub Crawl” is always a featured favorite, with its lit costume pieces, Santa beards, and laid back vibe--especially since all of the proceeds will go to help a child who needs help this season, via the Fraternal Order of Police’s Blue Santa program. 

As you can see, there's quite a variety from which to choose. Peruse the plethora of options in the schedule of events as follows:
