The Stars Come Out

Workers on Thursday lifted four 6-foot stars trimmed in lights to the top of the historic Parker County Courthouse for installation that will be used as part of this year’s Christmas lighting and decorations on and around the courthouse.

Parker County Judge Mark Riley said this year is the first in more than 20 years that a star, or stars, have been placed atop the courthouse for the holidays.

The stars were purchased through the fundraising efforts of a courthouse lighting committee with no public monies used, Riley said. Work to install and begin decorating the 30-foot-tall Christmas tree in front of the courthouse should begin next week.

A public lighting ceremony for the courthouse and tree is set for 7 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 30.
