Santa Is Coming to H-Town—And So Is the Magical Winter Lights Event

Just in time for the holiday season, Magical Winter Lights has returned to Houston at Gulf Greyhound Park from November 15, 2019 to January 5, 2020.

Magical Winter Lights features over 6 million lights, upgraded installations, interactive displays, and eight themed lantern sections. The multicultural festival will also feature the dinosaur exhibit with kid-friendly dinosaur rides, entertainment by Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus, the Ice Sisters, authentic arts, and crafts created by skilled Chinese artisans, carnival rides and games, and food. They are introducing brand new nightly Chinese acrobatic shows this year, as well.

It will take approximately 2 hours to walk through the lantern exhibits and to catch a Chinese acrobatic performance included in your admission. We recommend carving out about 3 hours of your day since Magical Winter Lights also offers other entertainment like a full-service carnival, musical performances, vendor shops, a food court, and more!

Magical Winter Lights is a spectacular, larger-than-life festival that presents a fresh multicultural take on traditional holiday light shows. This 52-day holiday celebration occupies 20 acres of outdoor space featuring Texas-sized lantern masterpieces using Chinese lantern-making techniques. The festival is Houston’s largest holiday celebration and the nation’s largest lantern festival of its kind.

Ticket prices for Magical Winter Lights will vary and can be purchased on-site. For more information, please visit
