ARLINGTON, Texas (October 24, 2017) – The spirit of Christmas is all about giving and bringing joy to others, and Enchant Christmas, the winter wonderland celebration with brilliantly illuminated sculptures, strongly believes in that. After much success in Canada, the 34-day holiday event is making its United States debut at Globe Life Park in Arlington.

There’s so much to see and do at Enchant Christmas. Families and friends will enjoy more than three acres of incredible lights. Kids will have fun as they help Santa Claus find his nine-missing reindeer in the world’s largest light maze.
In addition to experiencing the incredible maze and skating pond, families can take this year’s Christmas card photos around the largest outdoor Christmas tree in North Texas. Feeling a little hungry? Eat, drink, and be merry while enjoying everything from funnel cakes to delicious dinners at one of 21 food trucks. Moms and dads need a little rest? Then, sit back, enjoy a beverage, and let your kids run free in the Enchant Mini Maze. Don’t forget to visit Santa Claus in his one-of-a-kind golden palace!
Enchant Christmas also features a unique Christmas market, combining a variety of local vendors and artisans that’s perfect for holiday shopping. Underneath beautiful market huts, you’ll find an array of gift ideas for your family and friends – everything from home decor, jewelry, gourmet foods, holiday gifts and more! The Christmas Market also includes an Arlington favorite, the Texas Christkindl Market, as the all-new Texas Christkindl Market Lane!
