Baby, it's cold outside
Enchant holiday event at Dallas' Fair Park temporarily closing due to winter weather
UPDATE 12-23-2022: Enchant also will be closed Friday, December 23 due to weather. They are offering date changes for affected ticket holders to attend another night through January 1, and refunds for those who will not be able to reschedule at www.enchantchristmas.com.
Enchant, the popular outdoor holiday lights experience at Dallas' Fair Park, will be canceled Thursday, December 22 due to impending severe winter weather.
In a statement, organizers say:
"Unfortunately, due to the forecast of severe weather on Thursday, December 22, in Dallas, Enchant has made the difficult decision to not open on Thursday evening this week. We are offering date changes for 12/22 ticket holders to attend another night through January 1 and refunds for those who will not be able to reschedule at www.enchantchristmas.com. We regret any inconvenience and disappointment to our guests, especially the little ones. Santa and his elves are waiting to meet them - and we hope you will be able to visit Enchant this holiday season."
A decision on the Friday, December 23 event would be announced soon, they say.
According to WFAA, an arctic front will bring dangerously cold temperatures to Dallas on Thursday. A wind chill watch has been issued for all day Thursday through Friday morning.
"Simply, it will be very cold and potentially dangerous if precautions are not taken," WFAA meteorologists say. "Exposed skin can get frostbite very quickly with the cold on Thursday into Friday."
Enchant, which covers 10 acres at Fair Park, is touted as the world's largest holiday-themed lights event. It features an immersive walk-thru light maze created from over 4 million sparkling lights, a 100-foot-tall Christmas tree, an ice-skating trail, live entertainment, Santa visits, and a village marketplace with crafts, gifts, festive culinary treats, and holiday cocktails.
Enchant runs nightly, starting at 5:30 pm, through January 1.
