Big D Holiday

Are you looking for traditional events to celebrate the upcoming holiday season? The Big D Holiday guide is an assortment of events and activities happening around Dallas and this list will guide you in finding activities that your family will enjoy together. My family is planning to start our Big D Holiday fun with a trip to the Dallas Arboretum to celebrate the annual 12 Days of Christmas exhibit presented by Reliant.  

I love to take the kids to the Dallas Arboretum because I am always impressed with the gardens and the beauty of the exhibits that they have on display. I can spend hours here with my family browsing the beautiful gardens, hanging out at the Rory Meyers children’s garden or participating at the various activities hosted here.

The annual 12 days of Christmas display at the Arboretum is a fun tradition where many of the locals come here to take pictures with the beautiful grand displays representing the 12 days of Christmas. Each of the Victorian style exhibits showcases the 12 days of Christmas and life size entertainment within the gazebos. The Garden reopens nightly from 6pm-9pm for special themed events.

The evening at the Dallas Arboretum during the 12 days of Christmas celebration will have many activities going on including the Elves workshop, Serenade and Sweets, Visits with Santa and many more. These activities all have specific dates and times. Be sure to check the event calendar for more details.

Visitors from all around the state and beyond come here because of what can be experienced during the Big D Holidays. The lineup of events will fill your calendar with great traditions and wonderful memories. We are looking forward to The Nutcracker at the Dallas Winspear Opera house that will
begin November 25th. I can’t wait to participate in a Holiday tradition of a beautiful ballet performance.

The Fair Park will transform into walk-through light display of lanterns called Holiday Wonder. The Dallas Children’s Theater will put on a performance of Frosty and Friends and A Charlie Brown Christmas. Also, Galleria Dallas will host a Grand Tree Lighting featuring ice skating and pyrotechnics.

Magical Winter Lights 2017 & Giveaway

 Are you ready for a Magical Winter Lights experience? This is the largest Lantern festival in the United States and something that would be great to make memories as a family.  I am very impressed with that title because everything is bigger here in Texas and what better way to have a grand event here. 

This event started in Houston and this will be the first time they are bringing the lights here to Lone Star Park in Grandprairie.  The Magical Winter lights will have the Chinese lanterns on display that are larger than you will see anywhere else. The event will also include food court and nightly performances. 

I have a GIVEAWAY of 5 Family 4 packs to experience the Magical Winter Lights at Lone Star Park. This is a giveaway that I know you will want to enter and experience the lights with your family. The giveaway will be on my Instagram page and I hope you are following for a chance to win.
