Corpus Christi’s Merry Days by the Bay

In 2018, Corpus Christi gave itself a Christmas present: a new 66-foot-tall Christmas tree with 2,000 ornaments and 7,000 lights. City crews began erecting the tree the week before Thanksgiving this year to get it ready for the Harbor Lights Festival tree lighting December 7. Photo by Carrie Robertson Meyer/Third Coast Photo
