Magical Winter Lights

Magical Winter Lights

This truly is the most wonderful time of the year. Sure, there’s traffic around the malls and so many things to get done before Christmas. But the lights, the music, the family, the magic, all of it makes the holiday season so special. And there’s a great place to get into the spirit of the season just a half hour drive from the Alexan Auburn Lakes luxury apartments.

Going on now at Sam Houston Race Park is 2015 Magical Winter Lights, a 52-day festival that continues to January 10, 2016. It’s the largest holiday light festival in Houston and the largest lantern festival of its kind ever to take place in the U.S. I’m not sure who keeps the records on such facts, so I’ll take their word for it!

The light designs are based on Chinese lantern structures but the shapes are uniquely Houston. Check out the stunning Dinosaur Land where prehistoric creatures loom large and bright overhead. Europe features the Eiffel Tower, where you can ride in a horse-drawn carriage.

Magical Winter Lights also features a full carnival with rides, games and food. And Santa will be there many nights to take pictures with the kids.

Tickets for Magical Winter Lights are available in advance or same-day. Adults (13+) are $27, kids (4-12) are $16 and children under 4 get in free. There’s a family four-pack deal for $78. For more information, click here.

Magical Winter Lights is a unique way to celebrate the most wonderful time of the year. A short ride down I-45 from Alexan Auburn Lakes and totally worth the drive!
