It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in Dallas-Fort Worth! This weekend, you can get into the holiday spirit with Santa, do a little holiday shopping or enjoy a free annual parade. If you snap a great photo during your weekend adventures, tag it with #DFWWeekend, and we may feature it on our website and social media channels!
Arlington | December 9
Downtown Arlington will shine Saturday during their free annual parade, starting at 6 p.m. Come early to enjoy food trucks and live music, then stick around for a Christmas tree lighting countdown, photos with Santa at Levitt Pavilion and the classic holiday movie, Elf!
Fort Worth | December 9
If you’re like me and have yet to make your list, this North Texas M.A.D.E. market can help you knock out some of that daunting holiday shopping! More than 70 local vendors will be at Will Rogers Memorial Center this Saturday—selling everything from home decor to jewelry. Tickets are $3 in advance and $5 at the door!
Richardson | December 9
Head to Richardson’s newest retail and dining area for a day of shopping, live music and fun for the kiddos. Pick up gifts from local artisans, snap a photo with Santa and enjoy special discounts at favorite restaurants like Tom+Chee. Afterwards, swing by Santa’s Village for more free fun!
Waxahachie | December 9
Make holiday memories with a magical hayride down Main Street and a photo-op with Santa in Historic Downtown Waxahachie! It’s also the last weekend of Candlelight Home Tours, so head to town a little early and explore historic homes decked out in holiday decor.
