Enchant Christmas back open this year in Dallas

DALLAS – One of the biggest holiday attractions in North Texas is open for visitors.

After taking a year off, Enchant Christmas is back at a new location. It’s now in Dallas.

The first night was sold out.

Roasted nuts, apple fritters, and more lights than you can count.

For those looking for a reason to brave the chilly weather, look no further than Enchant Christmas in Dallas.

“I decorated my house, so doing this, I couldn’t even imagine,” Laura Orr said.

It’s opening weekend of Enchant Christmas, a holiday destination for families and friends.

Last year’s event was canceled due to COVID-19.


And this year, general manager Jeff Vetting said it’s even better at its new Fair Park location.

“There’s 160 live oak trees in our footprint and we’ve wrapped every single one of those with about 130 strands of lights, so they really pop,” he said.

Larger than life lit up ornaments, a frozen skating trail, and a maze for all the little ones on the lookout for Dasher, Dancer, Prancer and Vixen.

Stretching across 90,000 square feet, the maze is wrapped around a 10-story Christmas Tree. The perfect backdrop for a holiday family photo.

With activities both inside and out, there’s a little something for everyone.

The coolest new addition this year is the Polar Bar.

At a chilly 19 degrees, visitors will need a loaner jacket and gloves, and maybe a few beverages to keep you warm

In her third year as a vendor, Mercedes Gamero said she couldn’t be happier with the new layout.

“From all of the other events that we have done, this is the best place for all the lights,” she said.

Of course, it wouldn’t be Christmas without a story from Mrs. Claus and a chance to tell Saint Nick what you’re hoping to get under the tree.
