Holiday Happenings

Fall is in the air.  It’s time to break out the sweaters and the boots and discover all the festive events Houston has to offer this holiday season. Seasons Greetings!


Magical Winter Lights

A new holiday attraction is coming to Houston! Magical Winter Lights is a spectacular, larger-than-life attraction with a fresh take on the traditional holiday light show. The 52-day holiday light festival will be one of the largest holiday light festivals in Houston and the first interactive lantern festival of its kind. Magical Winter Lights differentiates itself from other more traditional holiday lighting events by basing its light designs from Chinese lantern structures and transforming them into larger-than-life remakes of well-known landmarks and landscapes in the world.
