Businesses sponsored 16 trees inside the Main street tent, and local schools and organizations decorated the trees.
The trees will go on dispay, then the program will donate them to families in the area.
"The Goliad Sheriff's Office do a Silver Santa Project, just like I said we want to give these trees back to the community. So, they have about 80 families they will be giving presents too, and Goliad Main Street will be giving 15 trees back to the community," said Goliad Main Street Director Keli Miller.
Stop by the tent downtown to snap a picture with the trees, and see the rest of Downtown Goliad with their Christmas decorations.
The trees will be on display in the downtown square until December 9th.
