The 41st annual Candlelight in the Park, where everyone can experience the warm glow of history and celebrate the season among the rich and unique historic assets found at the Dallas Heritage Village, will be held from 3 to 9 p.m., December 8 and 9. The historic buildings will be dressed in traditional holiday decorations dating from 1840 to 1910.
Dallas Heritage Village is home to the largest and finest collection of 19th-century pioneer and Victorian homes and commercial buildings in Texas. Included this year will be carriage rides along candlelit paths and hayrides pulled by an antique tractor or Nip and Tuck, two mammoth jack donkeys, a photo with St. Nicholas at the bandstand, novel storytelling, hand-weaving, blacksmithing, local dancers, choirs and other entertainers on the Main Street stage.
Interpreters in traditional costume throughout the museum bring history to life, with strolling carolers throughout the village and inside the historic buildings, along traditional holiday activities and period games for kids of all ages. Proceeds help Dallas Heritage Village provide educational programs for more than 25,000 school children each year.
Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children. Onsite parking is available. For more information, call 214-421-5141 or visit DallasHeritageVillage.org
