Saturday, December 4, 2010
Head to Fair Park this weekend for 10 fun-filled hours of water-dancing, craft-making, gift-buying, tree-lighting, fireworks-flying, good ol’ seasonal glee at MetroPCS Fair Park Holiday. Free and open to the public, the holiday festival will feature rooftop fireworks, family-fun activities and crafts, The 500, Inc. Holiday Gift Market, the official City of Dallas tree-lighting ceremony, Bellagio-style “dancing water” shows synchronized to music at the Esplanade Fountain (10a - 6p at the top of every hour), plus free admission to Fair Park’s eight museums (details here). Fair Park welcomes the White Rock Marathon to its new home this weekend, giving visitors the chance to attend the free White Rock Marathon Health & Fitness Expo (9a-6p in the Automobile Building) or participate in the 5K Mayor’s Race and Fun Run (9a, registration fee required for 5K race).

Inside the Centennial Building, children and adults will flock to Santa’s Workshop for free arts and crafts activities, such as ornament making, do-it-yourself gift wrapping and cookie decorating, to name a few. A variety of free entertainment will be on tap including a performance by the Dallas Black Dance Theatre’s Junior Dance Academy (11 – 11:45 a.m.), a puppet show by Le Theatre de Marionette (noon – 1 p.m.), the Chuck Anderson Quartet (1:30 – 2:30 p.m.) and a special performance of “Giggle, Giggle, Quack” by the Dallas Children’s Theater (3 – 4 p.m.).

At 5:15 p.m., Dallas Wind Symphony Quartet will take the stage outdoors for an hour-long performance, followed by the official City of Dallas tree-lighting ceremony at 6:15 p.m., hosted by 98.7 KLUV’s Jody Dean. A spectacular 10-minute fireworks finale will follow from the rooftops of the Automobile and Centennial buildings!

Admission is free. The City of Dallas charges $10 to park within the gates of Fair Park, or visitors can ride DART’s Green Line to the Fair Park Station.
