Although online shopping has its advantages, for a truly festive experience, head over to Galleria Houston. There, you’ll find twinkling lights, a glimmering ice rink, and a towering holiday tree to enhance the holiday spirit!
This Saturday, November 11, the Galleria will kick off its holiday festivities with the 34 Annual Ice Spectacular. Here, officials will hit the lights on its towering 55-foot Christmas tree adorned with 450,000 twinkling lights and 5,000 ornaments in various colors and shapes.
The time-honored Yuletide tradition will consists of a 45-minute, tree-lighting ceremony. This will include a performance from Season 21 The Voice contestant, Jershika Maple.
For the grand finale, spectators will be able to witness an ice-skating Santa Claus light the tree topped off with a firework display.
While in the holiday spirit at The Galleria, be sure to take a spin on the venue’s new-and-improved ice rink.
The upgraded ice rink at The Galleria, initially set to reopen on July 14, faced a delay in its reopening due to an issue with the ‘chiller system,’ is now open and operational to the public.
