Christmastime will arrive at the Dallas Arboretum this Wednesday.
Ready or not, here Christmas comes. This Wednesday, November 10, the Dallas Arboretum will kick off 12 Days of Christmas at Night, an enchanting garden-lit holiday experience!
Do you feel like the past two years owe you a little more cheer before the end of the year? Come and collect your merriment at the Dallas Arboretum starting this week, where the arboretum is lighting up their garden and gazebos with dazzling displays of Christmas lights.
“Holiday at the Arboretum, presented by Reliant, is Dallas’ favorite holiday tradition! Stroll the garden to see the 25-foot-tall elaborately decorated Victorian-style gazebos that represent each of the 12 Days of Christmas,” the organization writes on its website. ” In the evenings, the garden comes to life for a beautiful nighttime experience aglow with over one million lights. Enjoy our Christmas Village, visits with Santa Claus, entertainment, shopping, food & beverage options and the NEW 50-foot tall Dazzling Musical Tree with 42,000 lights and holiday tunes!”
As mentioned, 12 Days of Christmas at Night is the garden’s kickoff event before the arboretum goes full North Pole with a Christmas Village. Nonetheless, a pleasant stroll through an illuminate garden is probably what the soul needs right now. It’s also subtle enough to not catch flack from friends and family about celebrating Christmas too early – not that you should pay any attention to them anyways.
The Dallas Arboretum isn’t the only place in the city that is ready for the holidays. Starting November 19, the Dallas Zoo is holding their annual Zoo Lights event. Additionally, a pair of cheery yuletide pop-ups are also set to make merry this month. Plus, adults can climb aboard a real-life Polar Express on these Christmas Wine Trains in Grapevine!
