Waco Wonderland Tree Lighting and Fireworks!

The 9th annual Waco Wonderland festival returns to downtown Waco’s Heritage Square! Make plans to join in the fun as festivities begin!

The celebration kicks off at 5 p.m. at Waco’s Heritage Square. Food and merchant vendors, a live reindeer exhibit, train rides, a ferris wheel, and visits with Santa will round out the fun. A tree lighting ceremony and FIREWORKS at 7 p.m. will conclude this first evening.

Waco Wonderland’s Mistletoe Market features a variety of local merchants, with everything from art and jewelry to clothes and gifts. Downtown merchants are also offering specials throughout December to entice shoppers to wander downtown.
