Just one more day before this year’s Christmas at Old Fort Concho starts, dozens of people were on the parade ground setting up today.  

    The Fort Concho director says this year will be the first year they’ll utilize the new bandstand for Christmas at Old Fort Concho entertainment, which will include performances by the 97th Regimental Band who’s members come every year from Florida.
    “Music back in those days was only heard as loud as it can be played. If you played music too loud you would lose th tone and the effect. So by raising the band, it allws for the sound waves to flow freely all ove the parade grounds,” says Bob Bluthardt, Fort Concho Director. 
    Christmas at Old Fort Concho begins Friday at 3PM and runs through Saturday and Sunday.  You can find a schedule of special events on the Fort Concho website.
