By  | 

SPRING, TX – Visitors of all ages are invited to take part in a countdown to the illumination of the shimmering – and floating – 35-foot Christmas landmark rising from City Place Park’s main pond. Santa and Mrs. Claus will attend the festivities for the perfect opportunity to capture family photos, and guests can enjoy complimentary hot chocolate courtesy of the Houston City Place Marriott, along with face painters plus balloon and caricature artists, and seasonal sounds heavy on holiday classics from DJ Gilbert.

The complimentary festivities also serve as the unveiling of its signature Giant Gingerbread Village and a gumdrop, lollipop and candy-cane-lined path – guarded by two giant gingerbread men – leading to a raised clearing featuring cookie trees, a 16-foot-high gingerbread house and 12-foot windmill. The complimentary Insta-worthy attraction – no ticket required – was designed by the same creative team responsible for Houston’s Seismique interactive art museum. Both the tree and the village will be on display through the first week of January.
