The most wonderful time of the year is fast approaching! Are you and your family looking for unique Dallas Christmas light displays to round out your holiday celebration? We have your list of the DFW-area holiday light events you simply cannot miss.
Every November, the Dallas Zoo transforms into a winter wonderland in celebration of the holiday season.

There will also be multiple photo ops, an Elves’ workshop with animal encounters, ornament making and much more. The Dallas Zoo has something for the entire family to enjoy this holiday season.
Turn your car into a sleigh with a trip through the extravagant light display at Texas’ pride and joy, the Texas Motor Speedway. After you and your family have made your way through the Drive-Thru Park, head over to Santa’s Village for a night at the North Pole. Starting November 29, the Speedway will be open for holiday fun. Stay up to date on special events throughout the Gift of Lights season at their Facebook page.
Nothing says the most wonderful time of the year like a night spent exploring the “world’s largest” light maze! Enchant Christmas in Arlington’s Globe Life Park has something every member of your family will enjoy. Take pictures with Santa in his golden palace or rock around the venue’s festive Christmas tree. After working up an appetite skating on the frozen pond, head over to ChristKindle Market Lane to explore the food, drinks and other holiday goodies offered by more than 85 vendors. You and your family can round out the perfect holiday celebration with live music performances and maybe even catch up on some last-minute gift shopping.
Highland Park Christmas lights are a Dallas-area staple. This historic neighborhood boasts some of the most magnificent architecture and holiday light displays in North Texas. While it is free to walk or drive through the neighborhood, you can also rent a carriage to take you and your family through the historic district.
