Texas Tidbits: The Christmas Capital of Texas!

The Christmas Capital of Texas!
ATTENTION D/FW READERS! You guys have something going on for Christmas right in your own backyard! Grapevine, the so-proclaimed Christmas Capital of Texas has a fantastic weekend of Yuletide fun for everybody in your family!

What I remember as a sleepy little town has sure changed a lot since I was last there many years ago. I knew that BASS Pro Shops had a store there, but some other stuff, like the big Christmas celebration is new to me. No wonder they call themselves the  Christmas Capital of Texas! Check out the list of things to do this weekend in Grapevine and plan accordingly. When I said that there was something for everybody, I was not exaggerating.

                                                 List Of Christmas Events in Grapevine

  • North Pole Express - This is a 30 minute train ride that the younguns will absolutely love. During the ride, there will be caroling, ornament making, pictures with Santa and more!
  • Christmas on Maine Street - Santa is the Guest of Honor, and he brought lots of friends with him! How about Ellie the Elf, Frosty the Snowman and Santa on Stilts?! There will also be Reindeer Games and FREE hay rides!
  • Parade and Carol of Lights - Grapevine is decorated with millions of lights and it seems like for every light there is something to do. The Grapevine Opry will have its annual Christmas Spectacular and all around town there are so many activities going on that you'll have a hard time deciding what to do next! 
For those of you who live in the outlying areas of the Metroplex, there are some pretty impressive Hotel Packages for you and your family. You can click on any of the links above and navigate around the Christmas Capital of Texas website and get more information of some of the goings on that I didn't list here.

I am duly impressed with Grapevine and their status as such a great place for the whole family to enjoy the holidays. Like I said at the beginning of this post, Grapevine isn't just a sleepy little town anymore. With what I have read this morning, I believe that Grapevine truly is the Christmas Capital of Texas!
