Christmas Prairie Lights are an Annual Tradition




Prairie Lights takes visitors on a two-mile drive featuring 4 million lights that drew 230,000 visitors in 2016 and will be better than ever in 2017 with new custom displays and attractions with themes like Pirate Christmas, Santa’s Mailroom, Winter Woods, and others. Midway through the drive, families can stop at Holiday Village for concessions, carousel rides, a gift shop and photos with Santa.

Inside Holiday Village, the Snow Maze is a whimsical world of a snowman wonderland that goes through a playful labyrinth of twists and turns. The Holiday Magic Walk-Through Forest contains even more displays and illuminated trees for the perfect spot to take photos and see the lights up close. Then, finish the drive through the park with the always-popular animated tunnel of lights.

 

Admission is $35 to $45. Location: Lynn Creek Park on Joe Pool Lake, 5610 Lake Ridge Pkwy., Grand Prairie. For times, dates and more information, call 972-237-8339. Avoid the lines with a Prairie Lights Fast Pass from PrairieLights.org.
