The City of Garland flips the switch on its giant tree and fully animated light show this Thursday with a free family festival on Thursday, December 7th . It takes 4,000,000 lines of code to animate the 75,000 twinkling lights making Garland’s historic downtown square one of the most colorful and sparkly spots to celebrate the season.
In addition to the tree lighting and light show, the “Christmas on the Square” kick-off will feature an array of whimsical and elaborate ice carvings, snow hills to slide down, snowman building, trackless train rides, choir performances, food vendors, and of course, an appearance by Mr. and Mrs. Claus.
WHEN: Thursday, December 7, 2017, 5:30 – 9:30 p.m.
WHERE: Garland’s Historic Downtown Square, Sixth and Main Streets
