Shed Some Light on History

Do a Marty McFly and travel back in time to the 19th century during Candlelight at Old City Park in Dallas. The two-day weekend festival conjures up ye olde holiday experience for the family: carriage rides courtesy of half-brother donkeys Nip and Tuck, storytelling, photos with St. Nick, crafts, entertainment and all that jazz. Listen to the likes of the Shufflin' Shoe Cloggers or bring your glowsticks for the Holiday Dance Party. Can't you hear those sleigh bells jingling, ring-ting-tingling? Candlelight at Old City Park is Saturday and Sunday from 3 to 9 p.m. at Dallas Heritage Village at Old City Park, 1515 S. Harwood St. Tickets are $6 to $10. On-site parking is $5 per vehicle.

Sat., Dec. 11, 3-9 p.m.; Sun., Dec. 12, 3-9 p.m., 2010
