Follow your Thanksgiving feast with holiday lights, entertainment and fireworks in Uptown Houston on Thursday, November 26, 2015 from 4pm to 7pm.

Arrive at 4pm to enjoy holiday treats from food trucks and concession stands, enjoy Christmas and holiday music and take photos with walk-around larger-than-life costumed characters of Santa’s reindeer.

Starting at 5pm, the Merry Holiday Stage Show kicks off with festive live performances from local Houston entertainment groups, including the Houston Concert Band, Salvation Army Harbor Light Choir, Houston Choral Showcase, Mixteco Ballet Folklorico, Ballet Folklorico Azteca de Houston, Theater Under the Stars, the A.D. Players and more.

At 7pm, well after the sun has set, Santa Claus will light the half-million twinkling lights on the 80 Christmas trees and along rooftops spanning Post Oak Boulevard. The lighting is quickly followed by a holiday fireworks extravaganza above Uptown Park, featuring classic holiday music.
