Better Than Fair
Come on, Christmas only comes around one day every year; why not celebrate it for as long as possible? You can't celebrate it after it's already passed--that would be weird. So after Thanksgiving, attend as many events, festivals and tree lightings as possible. MetroPCS Fair Park Holiday is one of those festivals, featuring free museum visits, a Dallas Wind Symphony Quintet concert, arts and crafts, kids' activities and entertainment. If that wasn't enough, the City of Dallas will also unveil the newly renovated "Bellagio-style" Esplanade Fountain, filling the sky with dancing water performances. The 500 Inc. Holiday Market will feature a variety of quality merchandise, gifts and holiday decor. To top it off, the festival will end with the City of Dallas Tree-Lighting Ceremony and Candlelight Military Tribute. The festival will take place from 2 to 7 p.m. Sunday at Fair Park, located at 1121 First Ave. Admission is free, and parking is $10. For more information, go to fairpark.org.
Sun., Dec. 6, 2-7 p.m., 2009
