Visit With Santa
If someone wants to share their wish list with Santa, they’ll have the perfect opportunity at the Sachse Christmas Extravaganza. On December 8th, the Christmas Extravaganza kicks off at 6 PM with a lighted Christmas Parade in Sachse. After the parade, the Tree Lighting ceremony takes place at 7 PM in front of City Hall. Then you'll have the chance to visit Santa in the City Hall rotunda. Other activities include a petting zoo, storytime, cookies, train rides, and a Winter Wonderland Surprise.
Painting with a Twist - Family Day!
At Painting with a Twist, guests can relax, socialize, and learn to paint. Some scheduled events are specifically designated as “Family Day” or “Family Night”" which means that artists of all ages are welcome to come and enjoy the experience. At the Garland location, you'll find several upcoming events where artists can paint a reindeer, a neon dragon, a unicorn, Christmas candy, a holiday Llama, Kids Christmas Tree, a snowman, and more. Check out their calendar to find an event and date/time that works best for you, sign up, and enjoy the experience.
