WFAA’s Family First events are always a great time for the family to come and enjoy what the community has to offer. This time the station has put their seal on the Second Annual Christmas on the Square in Garland on Dec. 6 with news anchor Gloria Campos and Santa lighting the tree.
While many Christmas tree lightings happening all over DFW, this one offers some fun holiday activities that you can’t find anywhere else like:
- Ride a Horse-drawn carriage
- Tubing down snow tubing hills
- View a live ice carving demonstration
- Children can get their picture taken with Santa and take home a free souvenir photo button
- Find a new friend at the Garland Animal Services pet adoption booth
- Shopping in the Christmas Bazaar booths
- Eating variety of festive holiday foods
The evening’s entertainment is provided by community and school organizations:
5:30 p.m. - Lakeshore Brass Band
7:00 p.m. – Tree Lighting Ceremony
7:15 p.m. – Keeley Elementary Choir

And what a great way to celebrate the spirit of giving than by donating an unwrapped toy to the Garland Firefighter’s Association’s Christmas Toy Drive.
