The Prairie Lights Holiday Lights Experience is Perfect for Families with Children of All Ages #PrairieLights


Everything is bigger in Texas. If you have been to Prairie Lights in Grand Prairie, TX, you will have to agree that the experience is BIG!  In today's post, I'll tell you about our visit to Prairie Lights and encourage your family to wear cozy clothing and Santa hats for a mesmerizing ride through the lights and a walk through the Holiday Village and Holiday Magic Lighted Forest (Don't worry - I will only share a few photos to give you an idea of the event without sharing too many that spoil the wonderful surprises!)

Let's start with the basics:
  • What: Prairie Lights Holiday Lights
  • Where: 5610 Lynn Creek Parkway. Driving directions may be found here
  • When: November 22, 2018 to December 30, 2018
  • Tickets: Buy tickets in advance on the Prairie Lights website here. (While it's a fabulous activity throughout the holiday season, a family-friendly hint is to visit at non-peak times such as weeknight/non-prime/non-holiday nights when possible.)
When you arrive at Prairie Lights, you will find a two-mile path with 4 million sparkling lights. There are hundreds of all-new displays, so even if you have visited before, there will be new dazzling displays that line and arch over the roads.



Approximately halfway through the drive, you will find Holiday Village.  This adds to the magic of the experience and is especially perfect for those with young children like mine.  Holiday Village has food, gifts, Santa, and a brand new indoor Holiday Show. 




The Indoor Holiday Show, Holiday Dreams, was fantastic. I won't spoil it for you, but I have never seen anything quite like it. My children loved all of the special light effects!


The Holiday Magic Lighted Walk-Through Forest was my favorite part.  



If I could wrap a bow around my happiest memories, I would include memories of my children walking through the Holiday Magic Lighted Walk-Through Forest. They couldn't help but to run slightly ahead of us and periodically do happy dances under the sparkling lights.


We also appreciated that Prairie Lights has the best Santa Claus and photo setup.  If your baby is going to cry on Santa's lap, they have a rocking horse for your little one to sit instead.  (This is genius, right?!)


Once back in your vehicle, the second half of the drive ends with the very animated light tunnel – the perfect finale to a night you will never forget!  (I'm not sharing a photo of the tunnel because I don't want to spoil it for you. It's amazing and you'll appreciate the fabulous ending to your visit!)


I hope that I shared the perfect amount of information to tell you about the amazing experience without spoiling too many surprises for you.  Prairie Lights is sure to become a tradition for many families! Personally, it was a magical experience for my family. Our visit created happy childhood memories for my children to treasure.
