Christmas is coming, and the holiday season is in full swing in Dallas. That means there are a whole slew of holiday events throughout North Texas, from Christmas concerts to Santa sightings, light displays to holiday movies. Whatever you’re looking for to get in the spirit this year–whether it’s The Nutcracker or A Christmas Carol, a tree lighting festival downtown or a train track at NorthPark–our guide has you covered.
Frisco Square hosts a nightly light and music show to go with a temporary outdoor ice rink. On weekends, snow machines send flurries blasting across the square. Visitors can enjoy the wintry effect during a carriage ride. A big bash on Dec. 19 will feature Santa, “holiday treats,” and a snow slide for inner tubes. Through Jan. 2 at Frisco Square.
