Allen – Holiday Events

Known for their amazing shopping, Allen is a great place to head for the holidays. Their events are top notch and include tons of fun for all ages.

Enjoy things like candy cane carriage rides, Comet express train rides, live entertainment, a visit from Santa himself and Scrooge’s beer tavern at the Holly Jolly Celebration tree lighting on November 30th. Located in the circle of North Allen Drive and St. Mary Drive, the event is from 5:00pm – 10:00pm and will have all kinds of interactive entertainment for the whole family!

The Village at Allen is hosting Wonder at the Village all holiday season long! Enjoy fun, family-friendly events such as a hot cocoa walk, a character day and our personal favorite: sleigh flying lessons! You can learn how to fly Santa’s sleigh from Buddy the Elf and meet some of Santa’s famous reindeer who will be flying in all the way from the North Pole. The events occur once a week so be sure to make it out to one, or all!

Head out to Watters Creek on December 17 for Merry TubaChristmas! Hosted by the Allen Philharmonic, tubists of all ages will play Christmas carols and crowd favorites alongside professionals, while spectators are encouraged to sing along and join in on the holiday fun!
