Ebby’s Home for the Holidays: NorthPark Center

North Park Still

Each holiday season, Dallas’ NorthPark Center transforms into a magical place for the entire family. We got an exclusive look into what makes the shopping center so festive, from the 26 Michigan-grown Blue Spruce trees to the 3,000 brightly colored poinsettias. Watch the video below to see all the beautiful decorations that pop up at NorthPark Center for the holidays.

Once you see all the beautiful holiday foliage and décor throughout, check the following NorthPark Center holiday attractions off your to-do list:
