During Candlelight, pioneer and Victorian Texas is brought to life with costumed interpreters. At the 1860s Farmstead, attendees see how early Dallas pioneers enjoyed a modest Christmas as the country approached the Civil War. At the roaring bonfire, Cowboys tell tales, and at the Alamo Saloon, root beer and games of dominoes are available. The candlelit paths provide a perfect opportunity to take a stroll and tour the historic structures. At the Depot, kids tell St. Nicholas their Christmas wishes and see the American Flyer model train exhibit. Village Donkeys Nip and Tuck will be posing for pictures, and Mammoth Jack donkey team Willie and Waylon will offer guests carriage rides on the candlelit paths ($5). Hayrides, pulled by a vintage tractor, are also available ($3 per rider). Local musicians, dancers, bands, choirs, and storytellers will entertain at three locations. Foods will be available for purchase from food trucks, a bake sale, traditional kettle korn, nuts and more.
