Heard Holiday Trail of Lights

Bundle up your family, get out of the house, and experience the most unique holiday lighting display in North Texas.

The whole family will have  fun at the Heard at this holiday event. You will see thousands of  twinkling holiday lights—many synchronized to holiday music, along a half mile Heard nature trail.

Bring the children and have their photos taken with Father Christmas and Mother Nature in this festive setting. Family friendly entertainment will complement the holiday atmosphere, while you enjoy hot beverages and treats. Listen to live holiday music in the Heard outdoor amphitheater performed by local groups.
