The Town of Austin is Getting in the Holiday Spirit

The Greater Austin Chamber of Commerce and the citizens of Austin are eagerly planning their 16th Annual Live Nativity. This is always a great evening for everyone to get in the spirit of Christmas. Following the Nativity, hot chocolate and cookies will be served at the Austin Fire House, to help warm everyone up and get them in the mood for the Turkey Raffle. We’re also sponsoring a canned food drive for those who need extra help during the Holidays. Bring your canned goods or non-perishable items to the Fire House before the Nativity.

The Chamber is once again sponsoring the annual lighting contest for homes and businesses in Austin and residences in Gillman Springs and Kingston. We‘ll be judging the lights somewhere between December 12 through14. This gives everyone plenty of time to light up Austin! The winners will be announced in the Battle Mountain Bugle, and plaques will be awarded.
