It’s the most wonderful time of the year! While we may not be able to go sledding or build snowmen, we can still experience the essence of winter. Christmas is right around the corner, but there’s plenty of time to participate in some holiday festivities. There are several activities in the corridor that will instantly transport you into a winter wonderland.
SNOWDAY returns to the Galleria Dallas for the fourth year in a row. SNOWDAY is an immersive holiday experience with heaps of photo opportunities. As soon as you walk through the door, you’ll feel like you just exited a portal leading straight to the North Pole. Explore 20 festive themed rooms and gaze in awe at the assortment of lights decorated in every corner. You may even run into some of Santa’s elves along the way.
There will be five photo booths with integrated cameras and lighting scattered throughout the exhibit, and afterwards the pictures will be sent directly to your phone. Everywhere you look serves as the perfect backdrop. Wander through a mirror maze of multicolored holiday lights dangling from the ceiling or strike a pose for your Instagram on a decked out 1970’s van.
It snows everyday at 6:00 p.m., 7:00 p.m., and 8:00 p.m.—making your wintry adventure that much more extraordinary. You can even bring your pets on Wednesday nights! There’s so much to do and see at this interactive holiday village.
SNOWDAY is located on the first floor at the Galleria Dallas and will be operating until January 8th. Tickets start at $21.99 for adults and $9.99 for children ages 4-12. Children 3 and under get in free.
All aboard the Santaland Express! Head on down to Santland at the Galleria Dallas and enjoy a cheery train ride to Santa’s secret hideaway. Venture through an enchanted path and a magical moonlit forest ornamented in luminous lights and polar bears. Once you reach the end, you’ll find Santa there waiting for you.
Santa has a special surprise in store for your little ones. Thanks to Santaland’s ‘wishlist technology’ Santa will already know the names of each kid and what they want for Christmas! Now that’s a memory your kiddos will never forget. It’s truly the ultimate Santa Clause meet and greet.
Santaland is a part of the SNOWDAY experience, but tickets are sold separately and the last day to visit is December 24th. Ticket prices vary by day. Check out their website to view the cost for the day and time you’re interested in.
Stroll through Vitruvian Park where you’ll encounter a spectacle of over 550 trees bedazzled in tens of thousands of kaleidoscopic colors. It’s a great way to spend some time with your loved ones or walk off a holiday dinner. The Vitruvian Lights are an Addison tradition that you don’t want to miss out on.
Vitruvian Lights will run until New Year’s Day and will be open from 5:00 p.m.-11:00 p.m. Don’t worry about bringing your wallet since this is a free local event. Go out and enjoy the beautiful display tonight!
