High Five - Holiday Events

Nov 26, 2013 10:56AM ● Published by tina

There’s nothing like the holiday season — snowflakes, hot cocoa, Christmas carols and twinkling lights make for a magical time spent with family and friends. We’ve rounded up a few area events that celebrate the season, so take a peek: There’s something for everyone.

 

Home for the Holidays

Idyllic Southlake Town Square will once again be bustling with holiday excitement, starting Nov. 23, when Santa Claus lights up the Square’s beautiful Christmas tree. Feel the season’s magic with carriage rides provided by Workhorse Ranch & Old Time Carriage Co., and take the kids through Santa’s Village, where they can relay their Christmas wishes to Saint Nick. 

Gaylord Texan — A Lone Star Christmas

Experience a holiday destination like no other this season at the Gaylord Texan. Beginning Nov. 14, the resort will be illuminated with 1.5 million twinkling lights plus 15,000 ornaments and a 54-foot-tall Christmas tree. The whole family can enjoy the scheduled events, including The Nutcracker, Gingy’s Gingerbread Decorating and Kung Fu Panda Awesome Snow Tubing, through Jan. 4. 

North Pole Express

All aboard for the North Pole! Starting Nov. 29, the magical tale of the polar express comes to life at the North Pole Express at the Grapevine Vintage Railroad. For just $25 each, you and your family can ride in a Victorian coach on a journey though a Christmas tree maze, enjoying chocolate milk, special souvenirs (including a holiday bell) and a fun encounter with Santa. Through Dec. 22.

Trio Holiday Cooking Class

The holidays and delicious food go hand-in-hand, which is precisely why Chef Jason Harper of Colleyville’s Trio Catering Kitchen decided to host a holiday cooking class Nov. 12. During the hands-on session, which is BYOB and lasts from 6:30 to 9 p.m., guests will get to whip up tasty menu items like pomegranate-glazed ham, citrus herb-roasted Cornish game hen, jalapeño cornbread stuffing and apple pie.  

Macy’s Grand Tree Lighting

It wouldn’t be Christmas in DFW without a pyrotechnic Santa (a.k.a. Missile Toes) and the world’s tallest indoor tree, towering 95 feet over the ice rink at the Galleria Dallas. On Nov. 29, enjoy the tree lighting tradition along with a few famous faces — legendary ice-skating champions Kurt Browning, Kim Navarro and Brent Bommentre. Olympic ice-skating gold medalist Sarah Hughes closes the celebration Dec. 21.
