Get Wrapped Up in Candlelight at Heritage Village
See how Texas’ earliest residents observed holiday traditions in the late 1800s from 3 to 9 p.m., December 14 and 15, during the 42nd annual Candlelight Celebration at Dallas Heritage Village, sponsored by Baylor Health Care System.
American Flyer model train exhibit, local artisans, live music on the bandstand and holiday exhibits, along with traditional carolers, carriage rides, entertainment and some of Dallas’ most popular food trucks will be on hand, as well as with seasonal décor and traditional celebrations featured throughout the Village.
Victorian Texas is brought to life by characters dressed in period costumes. Guests may explore 38 historic buildings, circa 1840 to 1910, decorated by area garden clubs. Different family holiday traditions and activities are celebrated at Candlelight by interpreters.
Listen to Cowboys tell tales around the bonfire and stop by the Alamo saloon for a root beer and a game of dominoes, or visit St. Nicholas in the Depot and snap a photo with him. Kids may also participate in hands-on holiday crafts.
