Citing the health and safety of its guests, volunteers and visitors as its number one priority, the City of Boerne, in consultation with its COVID-19 Task Force, is reimagining how to safely hold holiday activities this year.
“We recognize the COVID-19 pandemic is not likely to subside significantly in 2020, and the highest priority is the safety of our guests, volunteers, and staff,” said Captain Steve Perez, the City’s Emergency Management Coordinator for the City’s COVID 19 Task Force.
“Under the current circumstances we are looking for alternatives to support our Hill Country Mile businesses during the holidays while avoiding large gatherings this year.” said Paul Barwick, Special Projects Director for the City.
“The Hill Country Mile will still be beautifully decorated and covered in holiday lights this Christmas season, and we welcome those looking for a small-town picturesque experience where the holidays will be celebrated all season long,” Barwick said. “In the meantime, Boerne is a great place for an afternoon or weekend of exploring our trails, public art, shopping, dining or grabbing a curbside meal.
We hope everyone will continue to support Boerne’s small businesses. Let’s all Shop Local this year.”
Downtown Boerne’s collection of boutique shops, restaurants and hotels remain open, are following all mandated safety accommodations and welcome visitors and guests to come enjoy a unique getaway in a historic setting.
