🕐 1 min read

Magical Winter Lights, Houston’s annual lantern festival and holiday celebration, is coming to Dallas-Fort Worth.

The event is the largest lantern festival of it’s kind in the U.S. and will run from Nov. 17 to Jan. 7. at Lone Star Park in Grand Prairie, a news release from People Generation, Inc. says. The event will run on major holidays including Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.

“Magical Winter Lights has become a new holiday tradition for Houstonians in two short years. We are excited to bring this new holiday tradition to the residents of the Dallas-Fort Worth area,” said Yusi C. An, founder of Magical Winter Lights. “We are thrilled to have found a partner like Lone Star Park to provide a top-notch event venue and to help us serve our event patrons.”

The festival creates larger-than-life remakes of well-known landmarks by adapting traditional chinese lantern construction techniques to fit large scale creations. The 2017 festival will feature several themed sections including Magical Wonderland, Christmas Candy Land, The Lone Star State, Dinosaur Land and Mystery of the East. The Dallas-Ft. Worth Magical Winter Lights will specifically include an entrance castle lantern inspired by the Dallas County Courthouse, a giant cowboy, and Dallas’ iconic Pegasus.

“We are thrilled to be hosting Magical Winter Lights,” said Lone Star Park president and general manager Scott Wells. “It’s a spectacular festival unlike anything we’ve seen before and is certain to add to Grand Prairie’s reputation as the region’s hotspot for holiday lights.”
