Hometown Holidays Festival

Friday, December 6, 2019 5-9:00 p.m.
Mansfield City Hall

Ever wish you could enjoy a holiday season as magical as the ones on tv? Come home to Mansfield, Texas, and be the star of your own Christmas movie. Hometown Holidays has a Hallmark-worthy lineup of merry moments, including shopping in a historic downtown, tree lighting with Santa and fireworks, a hometown parade and much more!
 Friday night is the main attraction, with a celebration that puts any tv movie to shame! The free festival includes live reindeer in a petting zoo, food trucks, games & rides, tons of hands-on activities like cookie decorating, ornament making and more! Of course, Santa and Mrs. Claus will be in their house, ready to hear wishes from little ones.
 And because Mansfield, Texas, does the holidays like no other, once we light the official city tree, enjoy a giant fireworks show! Other activities include a snow hill for sledding, street hockey and tons of photo ops.
 You’ll feel like the star of your very own holiday movie...come write it with us in Mansfield, Texas for Hometown Holidays!
