Experience the Holidays in Dallas
One of our absolute favorite things to do in Dallas during the holiday season is the Enchant Christmas experience at Fair Park.
This ticketed event offers up several experiences that the whole family will love. The centerpiece of Enchant Christmas is a dazzling light maze that stretches for what seems like miles. Walk through the wonderland of lights as you stare in awe at the 80-ft Everwhite Tree while you search the maze for Santa’s missing reindeer.
In addition to the light maze, you’ll be able to meet Santa Claus, spend some time ice skating, and even enjoy holiday food and drink at The Village, which features local vendors, live music, and delicious food and drink.
If there’s one thing you don’t want to miss this holiday season in Dallas, it’s the Enchant Christmas experience.
Maybe you’re looking to sit back, relax, and take in an incredible Christmas show this holiday season. Ballet North Texas is putting on their production of The Nutcracker at the Moody Performance Hall the first week of December. And on December 4th you can experience a Sensory Friendly Performance for those that are more sensitive to lights and sound.
