Wonderland of Lights Festival
Marshall, Texas, USA
Conceived in 1987, Wonderland of Lights Festival rivals the best Christmas lighting events in the country and is known as the “Granddaddy of Texas Lighting Festivals.” Each year, more than 10 million lights creatively caress homes and businesses with extravagant, elegant and simple displays.
The Historic Harrison County Courthouse is at the center of events and visitors are enthralled with the nightly synchronized light and music shows. Festival activities take place throughout the city, but the epicenter is the downtown square, which comfortably accommodates crowds and carries a sparkling atmosphere each evening.
Exciting activities abound with an outdoor ice rink which also serves as a stage for special ice performances, Wonderland Village, North Pole Play Land, a live variety show each night performed in Telegraph Park, North Pole Play Land Express train rides, Wonderland Mountain. Polar Challenge, carriage rides and other holiday activity.
The words of the holiday classic, “It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas,” could easily have been written about Marshall’s Wonderland of Lights, where miles of twinkling lights and festivities could make even the Grinch grin.
