Cue The Holiday Countdown: Galleria Dallas Set To Light The Country’s Tallest Indoor Tree

Ready or not, dear readers, the holidays are almost upon us. As of this weekend, just two months remain until Christmas. Time is even shorter for those who celebrate Hanukkah, which starts in only six weeks. Not to mention, Black Friday arrives in a mere 34 days. It’s about time to get shopping, and Galleria Dallas is already in the holiday spirit.

Named one of USA Today’s "Top 10 Places To Shop," Galleria Dallas is a playground of fashion, dining, and fun. Showcasing over 200 retailers, from luxury boutiques to fine art to toys, the vast, centrally-located center also hosts dining options spanning burgers, bistros, and beyond. When it comes to the most festive time of the year, Galleria Dallas does it up big and bold, starting with the tallest indoor holiday tree in the nation.

Climbing four stories, or 95 feet, above the Galleria Dallas ice rink, the aforementioned tree is a beloved symbol of the season here in North Texas. Illuminated with nearly half a million lights, it glitters with some 10,000 multi-colored ornaments. And by the way, more skaters glide under its gilded branches each year than in New York City’s Rockefeller Center. Did we mention Galleria Dallas does the holidays up big? The Macy’s Grand Tree Lighting Celebration marks the moment the Galleria Dallas tree comes to light for the season. Gathering Olympic skaters and Missile Toes, a pyrotechnic Santa, the first show takes place on Black Friday, November 27. A follow-up show will take place on Saturday, November 28, and additional Saturdays throughout December.

As you plan your visit to take the ultimate holiday tree selfie, make your list and check it twice for additional happenings at Galleria Dallas. Upcoming attractions include the Salvation Army Angel Tree, Operation Kindness Holiday Pet Adoptions, and plenty of face time with Santa himself.
