To ring in the holiday season with style, more than 100,000 people will converge on Houston’s premier shopping district, Uptown Houston, for the 25th Annual Uptown Holiday Lighting held on Thanksgiving evening. The event boasts traditional holiday music, larger-than-life characters and Santa plugging in half a million twinkling lights on 80 Christmas trees lining Post Oak Boulevard, Houston’s Rodeo Drive equivalent. The evening culminates with a fireworks extravaganza lighting up the Houston skies marking the beginning of the holiday season.
The Uptown Houston Holiday Lighting is held adjacent to the world-renowned Galleria mall and best of all – the event is FREE. Want to be part of the show? Staying at the Hilton Houston Post Oak puts you in the heart of the festivities, including the option to participate in the balcony decorating contest. Families have been doing it for years! The winners are announced via spotlight during the festivities.
This year marks the 25th Anniversary of Houston’s largest holiday tradition.
