Even though it seems like we just celebrated Halloween, Fort Worth is starting to look a lot like Christmas. With Sundance Square's Christmas tree in place and the Annual Chesapeake Parade of Lights in Downtown Fort Worth on the Horizon, it's time to get into the holiday spirit! Check out these fantastic events to build up your holiday cheer.

Don't miss the Annual Sundance Square tree lighting ceremony following the Parade of Lights on November 23, 2012. To celebrate the parade's 30-year milestone, the route will be lengthened, and will extend from the Tarrant County Courthouse to the Fort Worth Convention Center. Expect over half a million holiday lights, ultimately transforming Downtown Fort Worth with "The Wonder of it All!" theme.

Christmas in the Stockyards takes place December 1, 2012, and is a Fort Worth holiday tradition where you can take your picture with Cowboy Santa, enjoy pony rides and celebrate the season with the one and only, Fort Worth Herd.

One of the best ways to get into the holiday spirit is to catch a show with your family at one of the numerous performing arts venues in Fort Worth. Holiday favorites include 'Twas the Night Before Christmas at Casa Mañana and Home for the Holidays at Bass Performance Hall.

With more than two million LED lights, The Gift of Lights at Texas Motor Speedway is back and a great opportunity to share the joy of the season with friends and family. Evenings through January 6, enjoy dazzling displays; proceeds from Gift of Lights benefits the Tarrant Area Food Bank, Goodwill Industries, and KLTY Christmas Wish.
