The lights – just look at the lights!
The Fantasy Park looks like a fairyland lighted by beams of millions of tiny stars with one giant star hovering over it all. The angels are heralding the birth of the Christ Child. Look – are those the three Wise men coming afar? So many others are here also. There's Santa, Frosty the Snowman, the Sugarplum Fairy, a toy train, Christmas trees, toy soldiers, and the nativity scene. Then, out of the darkness at the end of main Street, march hundreds of children singing, bands playing, and floats covered with lights, slowly making their way down to Fantasy Park.

This is a special history event to commemorate the stories of Stephen F. Austin and his settlers, the event will offer themed programming related to historical events that occurred around Austin’s birthday in the years 1821-1836.

As the headquarters of Stephen F. Austin’s Colony in Mexican Texas, the historic town of San Felipe de Austin played a pivotal role in the arrival of American settlers and the ultimate story of independence. Serving as a political, economic and social crossroads in early Texas, San Felipe de Austin and its residents have deep connections to the events that took place at all of the prominent Texas Revolution sites including the Alamo.

COLONIAL TEXAS HERITAGE DAY PROCLAMATION

WHEREAS,
Colonial Texas Heritage Day has its origins in honoring Stephen F. Austin’s November 3rd birthday. San Felipe was the home of Stephen F. Austin, the “Father of Texas,” during all his life in Texas, except the last few months after his home burned, and

WHEREAS,
Conventions of 1832 and 1833 and the consultation of 1835 were held at San Felipe as a prelude to the Texas Declaration of Independence, and

WHERE AS,
The colonists realized a confrontation with the Mexican Government was inevitable, it was clear to them that lines of communication would have to be kept open with the colonists. As a result, the Texas Postal System was established in San Felipe in 1835, and San Felipe was the Colonial Capital of Texas and was the Social, Economic, and political hub until 1836, and

WHEREAS,
During the Texas Revolution, William B. Travis, a San Felipe Lawyer, and his men, left for the Alamo and whereas, Travis’ immortal message of “Victory or Death” was sent to San Felipe “by Express night & day,” and

WHEREAS,
A company of men led by Moseley Baker, with the San Felipe Flag, handmade by the women of the settlement, defended the river crossing after the town was burned on March 29, 1836 to slow the advance of the Mexican Army, and

WHEREAS,
the “ranging” companies that would eventually be known as Texas Rangers began at San Felipe; and whereas, the Texas Declaration of Independence was published by the Telegraph and Texas Register in 1836 in San Felipe and later signed at Washington-on-the-Brazos.
