Sundance Square prepares for holidays

🕐 2 min read

While North Texas waits for the cooler temperatures, Despite warmer than usual temperatures, Sundance Square is preparing for the Christmas and holiday season. A 57-foot blue spruce tree appeared in the center of the plaza Monday morning and throughout the week the tree and plaza are taking on a holiday look.

The official tree lighting ceremony will take place Saturday, Nov. 19 with festivities starting at 4 p.m. and culminating with the lighting at 6 p.m. The evening will be filled with an official countdown for the tree lighting, holiday carols, a visit with Santa Claus, as well as numerous photo opportunities throughout the plaza. The tree will remain in Sundance Square through January 3, and then it will be cut into lumber for a future Habitat for Humanity home in Fort Worth.

Holiday keepsake photos with Santa will be available for only $10 each (cash only) with the proceeds benefiting a scholarship fund established by the Fort Worth Sister Cities’ International Scholarship Fund. Santa will be in Sundance Square beginning November 19 through December 23. Check www.sundancesquare.com for specific times.

The XTO Parade of Lights is scheduled Sunday, November 20 at 6 p.m.
