**UPDATE! Winner Announced Below!**

What starts November 22nd you ask? 

Hill Country Holidays at the Westin La Cantera!

On November 22 thru January 6, the Westin La Cantera Hill Country Resort transforms into something magical! We visited twice last year, once to ice skate and watch the show by the Magik Theatre and another time to visit Santa's village and see the snow fall! We love that the resort opens it's doors to the public for the holidays and are thrilled to continue the tradition again this year! 

The Westin will host a variety of activities that will keep the entire family in the holiday spirit:
    Frost, a synthetic outdoor ice skating rink, 

the North Pole, with an Elves' Playland, live shows by the Magik Theatre of San Antonio
Santa’s Village filled with cookie decorating, visits with Santa, and wooden toy building,

AND a walking tour with a singing cowboy, carolers and a magical snow fall!

Hill Country Holidays is definitely worth the trip. The atmosphere is enchanting and the resort is beautiful in the evenings! My favorite spot is the view of the city, from the entrance of the resort. On top of the ambiance, you walk away with great memories, happy kids and your obligatory picture with Santa! 

Santa's Workshop and the Elves' Playland are free, but some optional activities may have a small fee. The play is $5 each person, with children under 3 free. Frost is $10 per person for 45 minutes of ice skating and the resort has free parking, with valet available. You can find the times and details for the activities here

Because we love the Westin La Cantera so much and because the staff at the Westin is amazing, we are hosting a giveaway for one lucky family to receive a special Hill Country Holiday Package. 

The giveaway will include a (1) night stay at the resort and tickets for Frost, the outdoor, synthetic ice skating rink for a family of four (4), plus a $25.00 resort credit per night of stay. Your $25 nightly resort credit can be used to experience the Hill Country Holidays activity of your choice, or indulge in any other resort amenity, including in the restaurants.

All you have to do is leave a comment with your thoughts of the Westin La Cantera's Hill Country Holidays. The contest will end Friday November 23rd at 11:59pm. A random winner will be chosen and be contacted by email and by post.
