Deck the Plaza to illuminate City Hall Plaza

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

The City of Dallas, in partnership with VisitDallas, are excited to announce the return of Deck the Plaza: City Hall Lights, a free holiday celebration from 5:30 to 8 p.m. on Friday, December 6.

Mayor Eric Johnson and the City Manager will ring in the holidays at Deck the Plaza, the official illumination of City Hall Plaza. This year’s host is WRR’s midday host, Amy Bishop.

The festive, family-friendly event will include a Texas-sized tree lighting, a Winter Wonderland experience and a special arrival from the big man himself… Santa Claus! Attendees can enjoy tasty holiday treats including hot chocolate, apple cider and cookies.

“We are very excited to activate City Hall Plaza again this year in a continued effort to make it our city’s official gathering place for special events and moments of celebration,” said T.C. Broadnax, Dallas City Manager. “I want to thank VisitDallas and our sponsors for helping make these wonderful holiday events a reality for both locals and visitors.”
