Join us for a month of holiday activities in North Richland Hills!

Friday, December 1
6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

North Richland Hills kicks off the 2017 Christmas season with the Holiday Magic Christmas Tree Lighting & Family Festival. The festival will include live music, community entertainment, food vendors, children’s activities, the Christmas Tree lighting, holiday scenes and of course Santa. A new location this year, along Hawk and Grand Avenues, brings the feel of a street festival to the event and also allows activities to be moved indoors to the Library and NRH Centre in case of inclement weather. The location also provides an opportunity for the city’s Christmas Tree and popular holiday photo scenes to be enjoyed throughout the entire month of December.
