The holiday season is here again, bringing with it a time for family and good cheer. If you plan on staying in the area this holiday season, you will be treated to an extravaganza of lights, celebrations, and fun things to do with the whole family. North Texas has an embarrassment of riches when it comes to holiday events, so our team at TLC Schools has put together a list of some of our favorite events taking place this year.
Without further ado, here is our 2017 North Texas Holiday guide!
ICE at Gaylord Texas
ICE at the Gaylord Hotel in Grapevine has taken place for a long time now, yet every year this special holiday event pleases families with some wholesome if not chilly fun. This year’s theme is “Twas the Night Before Christmas,” and families will enjoy experiencing the classic tale as they walk through expertly crafted ice sculptures and exhibits. If you want to have some more fun after you walk through the ice sculptures, the Gaylord is also home to snow tubing.
Enchant Christmas in Arlington
Located at Globe Life Park in Arlington, Enchant Christmas is a dazzling display of holiday happiness, collecting wintertime favorites all in one location. While Texas misses out on much of the ice-based fun, Enchant Christmas allows families to experience cold-weather fun like ice skating. Globe Life Park also plays host to the world’s largest light maze. Navigate the maze of Christmas lights, and afterwards visit the holiday marketplace and Santa’s Palace.
Dallas Zoo Lights
Children already love exploring the Dallas Zoo, but around the holidays, the beloved institution lights up in more ways than one with holiday cheer. Our North Texas Holiday guide would be incomplete without mentioning this event. The zoo lights up after 5 pm until 9 pm, and children will love exploring the bright lights, take parts in crafts, enjoy holiday treats, and watch special holiday performances.
This holiday season, explore one of these great events in our 2017 North Texas Holiday guide and make some memories with your family. These are just three holiday events in North Texas, but virtually every city will be celebrating the holiday season one way or another. Tell us about your favorite holiday event and share with our community some of your favorite holiday traditions.
