The Magical Winter Lights is one of the largest holiday lighting events in Houston, and the largest lantern festival of its kind to take place again in the U.S. Magical Winter Lights will showcase more impressive and creative lantern sets than its previous years. The festival will feature seven fascinating themed sections including Magical Wonderland, Mystical Forest, Santa’s Christmas Village, Mystery of the East, Dinosaur Land, Landmarks of the World and the festival’s newest section: The Lone Star State. The Lonestar State section will feature a few of Texas staples including a 36-foot tall cowboy lantern and a maze leading to eight Texas icons and buildings. The festival will also include a Holiday Market Square where guests will have a chance to explore the festival food court and shopping areas. Guests will have plenty of photo opportunities with appearances by the Ice Sisters and Santa Claus. There will be nightly acrobatic performances, authentic arts, and crafts created by skilled Chinese artisans, amusement rides and games, live entertainment, and an expanded dinosaur exhibit complete with dinosaur rides.
