Holiday at the Arboretum




Holiday at the Arboretum, from November 4 to January 7 at the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden has added an Elf movie night, karaoke, a toy soldier stilt walker and a display of 800 nutcrackers in the historic DeGolyer House, as well as a 12 Days of Christmas exhibition. The outdoor display includes more than half a million lights burning each night in the garden. Holiday tea, Santa sightings and special activities complete a day’s visit to the Dallas Arboretum.

Elaborately decorated Victorian-style gazebos are on display every day throughout the garden. Guests are invited to experience this delightful holiday tradition with a festive stroll through the gardens and revel in The 12 Days of Christmas exhibition with a dozen breathtaking gazebos in the beloved Christmas carol. Each gazebo is encased in glass and extravagantly decorated on all sides to provide a dramatic, three-dimensional experience that adds to its "music box" quality, depicting the old English carol. Each gazebo brings Christmas to life, including a partridge in a pear tree, hidden animals in the eight maids-a-milking and the elegant seven swans a-swimming.
