Christmas is just a handful of days away, but it's not too late to squeeze in a few last festive activities. From ballet shows to holiday plays, here are the top five events you can snag last-minute tickets to this weekend.
Dallas Theater Center's A Christmas Carol
Dicken's beloved classic is hitting the stage once again at Wyly Theater in Dallas. Watch as three spirits come to visit grouchy old Ebeneezer Scrooge in an attempt to change his money-grubbing ways. Choose between any of the many showtimes from now until December 30. Tickets are available at dallastheatercenter.org.
Enchant: The World's Largest Christmas Light Maze and Market
Why just drive around and look at Christmas lights when you can wander through a field packed with them? Your ticket to this lights maze in Arlington also gives you access to a cute little Christmas market. Stroll around underneath the fake snow and listen to Christmas music as you snap dozens of great photos. If you want to pay a little extra, you can even ice skate amongst the brilliantly-lit trees. The park stays open from now until December 30. Tickets are available at enchantchristmas.com/arlington.
Gaylord Texan's ICE featuring Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
From now until January 1, drop by the Gaylord Texan in Grapevine to visit a true winter wonderland. ICE features walk-through exhibits of more than two million pounds of ice sculptures, all kept at a frigid 9 degrees Fahrenheit. This year, the theme includes everyone's favorite reindeer, as well as a beautiful depiction of the Nativity scene. Use the code "JOLLY" to save on certain dates. Tickets are available here.
Holiday at the Arboretum
As always, the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden is putting on a Christmas display for viewers of all ages. The show's theme, "The 12 Days of Christmas," features a dozen elaborate gazebos filled with depictions from the song. See beautiful ladies dancing and bedazzled birds singing, then sip on some hot chocolate as you wander through the rest of the gardens. The displays stay up until December 31. Tickets are available at dallasarboretum.org.
Trans-Siberian Orchestra in Concert
On Saturday, December 22, the critically-acclaimed Trans-Siberian Orchestra will perform two shows from their beloved winter tour. Listen to classics like "O Come All Ye Faithful" performed in the rock opera style. Grab your tickets to either the 3 PM or 8 PM shows at American Airlines Center before they're gone.
