Christmas is Bright at Prairie Lights

Santa will be at the Prairie Lights light park Holiday Village every night through December 23 listening to holiday wishes and taking pictures with the kids for a fee. Prairie Lights features 4 million lights set along two miles of path.

Hundreds of new displays line and arch over the roads. Halfway through the drive, visitors can stop at Holiday Village for food, gifts, an indoor Holiday Show and the Holiday Magic Lighted Walk-Through Forest, with tens of thousands of lights arranged in scenes depicting how the holiday season is celebrated around the world. The second half of the drive ends with the world's largest animated light tunnel.

The Holiday Dreams themed show takes the time-honored elements of the holidays such as its visuals, the music, the colors, the values and the spirit of Christmas and mixes them with a modern spin. The result is a high-energy, exciting show for the whole family.

Cost is $35 to $150 for commercial vehicle load. Location: 5610 Lake Ridge Parkway, Grand Prairie. For more information, call 972-237-4569 or visit
