The AT&T Performing Arts Center and Dallas Arts District pulled out all the stops for the inaugural Reliant Lights Your Holidays at Sammons Park in 2013, and they're upping the ante for the encore this year on Saturday, December 6..

First, here's what the same: All of the buildings and trees on the ATTPAC campus will be lined with more than half a million LED lights, a sight that will dazzle by itself. The winter wonderland with real snow in which kids of all ages can sled down a small hill also will return, as will the mid-event fireworks.

Now for the new: Guests will be treated to performances from country star Jack Ingram and the legendary Los Lobos, and they can watch famed local muralist Frank Campagna paint live. 

They'll also have the ability to check out Texas Ballet Theater's The Nutcracker, Dallas Theater Center's A Christmas Carol and Dallas Symphony Orchestra's Christmas Pops concert following the event, all of which are being performed at Arts District venues.

As if all of that is not enough, Reliant Lights Your Holidays is actually the second part of an event doubleheader. Celebrate the Holidays at Klyde Warren Park will take place directly before this event, featuring music, live reindeer, photos with Santa and Mrs. Claus, and a Christmas tree lighting. Once the tree is lit, Santa and Mrs. Claus will lead the crowd over to Sammons Park for the evening festivities.
