Additional Information


Capture the true spirit of a small-town holiday celebration at the annual Holiday Lighting Festival on Denton’s Historic Square. Held on the second Friday following Thanksgiving, the event includes musical and dance presentations, horse drawn carriage rides, children’s crafts, and visits with Santa.

Bring toys to donate on the night of the Denton Holiday Lighting, or drop off prior to the event at First Baptist Denton located at 1100 Malone Street. Donated toys will be distributed to families needing assistance during the Christmas season in Denton County.

Check out the delicious Wassail recipes at the participating merchant locations around the square. Photos with Santa, horse-drawn wagon rides, and great food from local vendors are available for a small fee.
