31st Annual Uptown Houston Holiday Lighting


Every year on Thanksgiving evening, November 24th, Houstonians gather along Post Oak Boulevard for the annual Uptown Houston Holiday Lighting. This free family event features festive music, holiday characters, Santa Claus and lighting of more than a half million twinkling lights on 80 trees. This is all topped off with an incredible fireworks extravangza.

The event starts at 4 pm with music and concessions. Santa lights the Boulevard at 7 pm, followed by the fireworks display.

Parking is available at the Centre at Post Oak, Dillards, Four Oaks Place, Post Oak Plaza and Post Oak Central. Some area roads are closed for the event.
