Christmas Tree Lighting Celebration Tips: Parking, Safety and More

The countdown begins! We are just a few days away from our Home for the Holidays – Christmastime in Southlake kickoff event – the annual Christmas Tree Lighting Celebration begins at 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, November 20.

In preparation for the event, we’d like to share some helpful tips:


Free parking will be available at the East Garage and West Garage.


If you plan to utilize a rideshare service, direct your driver to our designated drop off site located at Summit Park, 1501 Main Street.

What to bring:

You may want to bring gloves or mittens and water resistant shoes for your little ones. We are offering fun activities like tubing down a snow hill and open-air carriage rides through Town Square. Bringing gloves and water resistant shoes will help ensure your kids stay warm throughout the entire event.

Get Notifications:

Sign up to receive emergency notifications related to the event by texting H4HSLK to 888777. You can also follow us on Facebook and Twitter for information and updates.


We anticipate high foot traffic during this event. Please remember to look both ways before crossing the street and be mindful of the Carriage Ride horses strolling through Town Square. If you need assistance during the event, please visit the Information Booth located near Town Hall.
