The holidays are in full swing throughout Crockett Row at West 7th, whether you're there to shop, dine, or simply marvel at the enchanting decorations.
Here are five ways you'll find a bit of seasonal magic around every corner.
1. Let there be music, let there be light
Every hour, on the hour, pause to take in the Starlight Symphony, which lights up the area from 6-9 pm each night through December 31. Favorite holiday tunes swell as Crockett Row is transformed into a glowing wonderland with a five-minute music and lights show — think of the Instagram videos alone.
2. Take a ride
Oh what fun it is to ride in a horse-drawn carriage, which makes its way around Crockett Row Friday and Saturday evenings from 6-9 pm. Line up for the complimentary rides in Crockett Square near Mash’d.
3. Remember the spirit of giving
SafeHaven of Tarrant County needs your help filling Santa’s Sack, so that everyone can experience the magic of the holidays. Donations, which benefit the nonprofit's crusade against domestic violence, will be accepted Monday through Friday from 12-6 pm and on Saturdays from 12-3 pm at 2901 W. 7th Street. A list of needs can be found here.
4. Listen to the sounds of the season
On Fridays and Saturdays from 6-8 pm, head to Crockett Square for live musical performances from artists including Kyle Redd and Deanna Malone, as well as the TCU School of Music, 7 City Church, Paschal High School, and Texas Men’s & Boys Choir.
5. You might just spot an elf
When you shop or dine at Crockett Row from December 6-20, one of Santa’s Elves could deliver an extra present by picking up your tab. And each Saturday until Christmas, there will be even more music and events to enjoy, including the Hank FM Party Patrol, photo booths, and special appearances by Santa himself.
