The holidays are upon us, a time when local communities stage special events to spread good cheer among residents and visitors alike. If you’re looking for a new home in Little Elm right now, make some time to celebrate the season by checking out a few of the special offerings in the area. After all, the holidays only come once a year!
If you have time for only one holiday event, consider Christmas in the Square in Frisco. This one of a kind extravaganza is the largest choreographed holiday lights and music show in Texas, with over 175,000 lights, 11-1/2 miles of wiring and 8 miles of extension cords!
The festive event includes a model train show, carriage rides and for the time in over ten years in the DFW area, an outdoor ice skating rink. In addition, Christmas in the Square features the same snow machines used by Disney to create a “winter wonderland” on the sidewalks of Frisco Square.
A light show of a different sort takes place in nearby McKinney with the 2nd annual Heard Trail of Lights. Walk along a half-mile section of the Heard nature trails to see thousands of holiday décor and lights, many synchronized to holiday music. You and your family can take photos with Father Christmas and Mother Nature in a festive, decorated cabin along the trail, and listen to live holiday music in the Heard amphitheater while sipping hot beverages.
More holiday lights are on display during the annual Rotary Christmas Light Parade in historic downtown McKinney. Featuring beautifully decorated, lighted floats, this holiday event culminates with an appearance by that jolly old elf himself, Santa Claus! Who knows, if you’ve been good this year, Santa might grant your wish of being in a new home in Little Elm by Christmas!
