Texas doesn't do anything small, and that goes especially for Christmas. Over the festive period, the Big D is extra bright, with a wide variety of Christmas displays popping up across the city. From neighborhood displays to downtown extravaganzas, here are the 5 BEST Christmas holiday lights to take your dog to in Dallas, TX.
One of the best commercial holiday light displays in Dallas is at Vitruvian Park in Addison. Each year, the park's 550 trees get a makeover with around a million lights turning the park into a winter wonderland. Your merry mutt is welcome to join your stroll around the park, as long as they stay on a leash at all times. Lights are on from late November until the start of January.
Luminova Holidays is sure to get you and your four-legged friend in the festive spirit. This special paid event occurs at the Globe Life Field baseball field and boasts over 3 million lights and a 65-foot Christmas tree. It's also home to the largest ice rink in Texas. Your holiday hound is welcome to join in on the festivities as long as you purchase a special ticket in advance. You can enjoy Luminova Holidays from mid-December till the start of January.
Taking a stroll through Frisco Square during the holidays is a magical experience. Over 200 dancing snowflakes, nearly 200,000 LEDs, and a 3,000-foot-long light-changing canopy make this one of the largest choreographed festive light displays in North Texas. The square can get very busy and noisy, so ensure your dog is well-adjusted before you visit. Before attending Christmas in the Square, consider letting Santa's Little Helper blow off some steam at the Ruff Range Dog Park. Christmas on the Square takes place from late November 'til early January.
Electric Lizzyland is among the best individual displays in Dallas. With handmade decorations, thousands of lights, and buckets of glitter, Electric Lizzyland positively sparkles.

Check out the display, and then let your pup run off-leash at the 3-acre White Rock Lake Dog Park. This display usually runs from mid-December until the start of January.
One of the most impressive neighborhood light shows in the Dallas area is the Browne Family Holiday Light Show. Thousands of LEDs are used to create a fully synchronized light show that's sure to dazzle you and your pup on your next dog walk. While this display is free, it's also a drop-off point for Toys for Tots, so consider bringing a present along for kids in need. Stop off at the Browne Family Holiday Light Show from late November to early January.
