Angels in DeGolyer:

Angels of all sizes and shapes are decking the halls of the DeGolyer Mansion this holiday season. More than 400 angels have been shared by the Dallas Pi Beta Phi Alumnae. Their curatorial team received their inspiration from the Annual Christmas Tree and the Neapolitan Baroque Crèche on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, so the DeGolyer display is sure to be exquisite. Angels in DeGolyer is open daily from 10 am-4 pm.


Pictures with Santa:

Give the children a chance to sit on Santa's knee and go over their wish lists before Christmas. A visit with Santa also makes for a great photo opportunity and usually ends with free candy canes and other goodies. Santa is available on weekends from 12-4 p.m. from Thanksgiving weekend through Dec. 22 before he returns to the North Pole to load up his sleigh. Bring your own camera to capture timeless photos of those children with Santa.


A Live Reindeer:

An essential part of the magic of Christmas, Santa would be lost without his trusty reindeer-Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner and Blitzen. Meet one of Santa's reindeer as they take turns visiting the Arboretum each week. The live reindeer visit the Dallas Arboretum, but like Santa, will return to the North Pole on Dec. 22


Meet Frosty and Rudolph:

Frosty and Rudolph, costumed characters, also join the fun at the Arboretum this holiday season. Bring a camera to capture these festive moments.
