Happy Holidays to you and yours from Old Hickory Square
The magic returns with activities around Frisco. The Christmas in the square special event night is Saturday December 19th from 5 PM – 10 PM. There will be a trackless train ride for all to enjoy. You will want to keep an eye on the sky for Santa to parachute down then enjoy a nice visit with him. Get your tube ready and slide down the snow slide or take a loop around the real outdoor skating rink. Bundle up with a blanket and a warm thermos of hot coco while being pulled by a horse drawn carriage through the winter wonderland. Gather up the kiddies for the amazing petting zoo and pony rides, don’t forget your camera! To really set the ambiance for the festivities there will be snow flurries every 15 minutes. To top your night off there will be a light and music show. For further information on pricing, times, and dates please visit http://friscosquare.com/cits/.

There are plenty of wonderful places to view all of the beautiful Christmas lights all around.
