Get in holiday spirit at Christmas on the Square 


Celebrate the holidays at Christmas on the Square 2016! In keeping with the long tradition of this special community event, Christmas on the Square will have its classic attractions with a few new surprises.

In addition to everyone’s favorite snow hills, Garland Water Utilities will sponsor a “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?” building area. The first 200 families at the snowman building area will get to create a snowy masterpiece. As always, the attractions are free!

The event will take place in the Downtown Garland Square at Main and Sixth streets from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 1. During this time, snow hills, snowman building, photos with Santa, holiday foods, children’s trains, children’s crafts, reindeer and more will be available. The tree lighting will be at 7 p.m., followed by choir performances 7:30 p.m.

Parking for the event is free and will be available at the following locations: Central Library, Senior Center, First Baptist Church on Glenbrook and DART on Walnut Street. For full event details including parking map, stage schedule and event map, visit

The City of Garland light display will run each night between 5 and 10 p.m. through New Year’s Day. For children and adults with sensory disorders, please join us at 6:30 p.m. on Nov. 30 in the Downtown Square for Garland’s fourth annual “Sensory-Friendly Tree Lighting.”
