Christmas in Dallas-Fort Worth: The Ultimate Guide to Making the Season as Magical as Possible

At ArrowBrooke, Dallas-Fort Worth’s premier master-planned community, we believe in a healthy balance of play, work, and relaxation. As the holiday season gets into full swing, we know many families are juggling commitments and long to-do lists. Your child might not remember whether you sent out Christmas cards, or what they got for Christmas. They almost certainly won’t remember whether the house was clean or the lights were symmetrical. But they will remember how Christmas made them feel. Give your child a lifetime’s worth of family memories with these great options for the most wonderful time of the year.

Spectacular Lights

Everyone loves a little sparkle during the holiday season. Take in some stunning light displays or participate in a tree lighting at any of these exceptional picks:

  • The Aubrey Hometown Christmas Tree Lighting is one of the best of the season, with glowing lights and plenty of family fun.
  • Embrace old-fashioned Christmas revelry at Christmas in the Square, which features lights, special events, and more through the end of the month.
  • Check out the holiday tree show and lighting at Klyde Warren Park. While you’re there, enjoy dance lessons, poetry, and other off-beat holiday fun.

Old-Fashioned Christmas Trees

Decorating for Christmas doesn’t have to mean a rushed trip to your local home store while you fight with the kids. Set aside an entire day to get a great tree at a nursery or farm. Here are your best bets:

Festivals aren’t just for warm weather. Enjoy food, crafts, games, and family fun with these spectacular special events:
