This Saturday, the Holidays Begin Downtown

We have less than one week until Thanksgiving, but Santa’s elves will officially herald the arrival of the holiday season tomorrow night in Downtown Dallas with City Lights 2010.

The family-friendly festivities begin at 5:00 pm at Main Street Garden with an outdoor market, face painting, ornament making and live music, followed by the lighting of the 65-foot Downtown Dallas Holiday Tree at 6:30 pm. Then moonwalk over to the flagship Neiman Marcus for the 7:00 pm unveiling of the 2010 holiday windows and lights and the much anticipated opening of “Big Encounters of the Little Kind”.

It all takes place tomorrow, Saturday, November 20 – for full details, visit
