Christmastime has arrived at the Dallas Arboretum.
Ready or not, here Christmas comes. Tonight, November 11, the Dallas Arboretum will kick off 12 Days of Christmas at Night, an enchanting garden-lit holiday experience!
Do you feel like 2020 owes you a little more cheer before the end of the year? Come and collect your merriment at the Dallas Arboretum starting tonight, where the arboretum is lighting up their garden and gazebos with dazzling displays of Christmas lights.
“The garden is open late for a special lighted nighttime experience with over a million lights,” the organization writes on its website. “To start the yuletide season, the 12 Days of Christmas at Night features the beloved gazebos. Additionally after Thanksgiving, enjoy our expanded Christmas Village, visits with Santa Claus every night, entertainment, shopping, food & beverage options and more!”
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 20, the Dallas Zoo is taking their Zoo Lights event on the road with a re-imagined drive-through event. Additionally, the Gaylord Texas Resort & Convention Center will open their immersive Christmas movie walk-through experience this Friday. Speaking of Christmas movies, adults can climb aboard a real-life Polar Express on these Christmas Wine Trains in Grapevine!
