A Month of Holiday Happenings

November 05, 2018

First, head over to Moody Gardens on November 17 for "Ice Land: Pole to Pole." Two million pounds of ice and a stellar team of ice carvers have produced icy reproductions of your favorite denizens of the animal world, including reindeer, snowy owls, polar bears, penguins, and more. Afterward, trek the mile-long trail to view the Festival of Lights. You’ll see over a million lights and some dazzling displays.

Galveston’s 45th Annual Dickens on the Strand, held from November 30 – December 2, will feature a Strand Street magically transformed into a Dickensian Christmas wonderland, with street performers, gifts, food, drink, and more. Lastly, don’t miss Downtown Lanterns and Lights beginning November 24. This yearly Saengerfest Park/downtown event features the enchanting illumination of Christmas lights and additional pieces through January 2.
