WHERE TO GET IN THE HOLIDAY SPIRIT

The first of December marks the official Christmas season in Grand Prairie with the annual Tree Lighting Ceremony in downtown. Experience the holiday cheer with choir performances and photos with Santa.
Open every Saturday and Sunday year round, you can shop from over 3,500 vendors at “America’s #1 Flea Market.” Plan plenty of time to explore this 161-acre site with family-friendly rides, arcade games and delicious food.
