Holidays in Klyde Warren Park


Klyde Warren Park's annual Tree Lighting Celebration Presented by the Dallas Tourism Public Improvement District has been reimagined for guests to enjoy this annual holiday tradition in a safe and socially distanced way. On seven separate nights, Santa Claus will light the tree while carolers from Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts entertain your family.

In addition, CBS 11 will broadcast the annual event on Sunday, December 20, at 7:30 AM and again on KXTA Channel 21 at 4 PM for those at home to enjoy! A portion of sponsorship proceeds benefit the North Texas Food Bank.
