Holiday in the Park

Holiday in the Park is Six Flags over Texas’ yearly Christmas celebration, typically held from the end of November to the beginning of January. The entire park is transformed into a giant holiday festival, complete with millions of Christmas lights, holiday shows, a snow sledding hill, Santa Clause, special food and drinks, merchandise, and more.

Six Flags over Texas started the event in 1985 making Holiday in the Park 2017 the 32nd year running.

The cool weather, specialty food vendors, and holiday attractions make Holiday in the Park one of the best times to visit the park.
