Dallas-Fort Worth’s Best Holiday Lights


While we may not always have a White Christmas, snowflakes are guaranteed during Frisco’s “Christmas in the Square” (Dallas N. Tollway and Main St., friscosqua­re.com/cits), home of the largest choreograp­hed holiday lights and music show in the Metroplex. From Nov. 27 to Jan. 2, more than half a million people will visit the annual event, which features almost 12 miles of more than 175,000 lights accompanie­d by music, plus a snow slide and snowmen builds.

If you’re into horse-drawn carriage or wagonette rides through larger-than-life displays of holiday lights, look no further than Highland Park Village (hpvillage. com) the upscale shopping center that becomes a glittering canvas covered in festive white lights every season. Addison’s Vitruvian Park becomes a colorful, magical wonderland of shimmering LED-covered trees during Vitruvian Lights (3966 Vitruvian Way, vitruvianp­ark.com). This post-Thanksgivi­ng tradition kicks off with a concert and mini-festival and lasts through New Year’s Day.

Right between Dallas and Fort Worth, Prairie Lights (5610 Lake Ridge Pkwy., Grand Prairie, prairielig­hts.org) offers a holiday adventure that begins with a twomile car ride underneath millions of lights and ends with a Holiday Village filled with hot chocolate and apple cider, kettle corn, a walk-through lighted forest and a theater housing a holiday laser show (we hear Santa will be there, too).
