At first we were cynics. We assumed Miracle Dallas in Victory Park was all about the "miracle" of credit cards and consumerism. Then we looked closer and were pleasantly surprised. Not only will the Park in the ol' VP have an outdoor ice rink, live entertainment and Santa (of course), but the whole point of the Thursday through Sunday events is to "celebrate miracles that are granted by local charities and organizations." We gotta say, that's pretty damn cool. Hours are noon to 8 p.m. Thursdays and Fridays, noon to 10 p.m. Saturdays, noon to 6 p.m. Sundays and 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Mavs and Stars game days.

Thursdays-Saturdays, 12-8 p.m.; Saturdays, 12-10 p.m.; Sundays, 12-6 p.m. Starts: Dec. 14. Continues through Dec. 30, 2007
