Grand Prairie is getting ready to shine with Prairie Lights, kicking off Thanksgiving evening.
The holiday light park, located in Lynn Creek Park on Joe Pool Lake, will feature a holiday village, walk-through forest, carnival rides, pictures with Santa Claus and holiday shopping.
Running Nov. 24-Dec. 31, the park opens at 6 p.m. with cars driving through tunnels of lights and past lighted theme areas. The two-mile route features 4 million lights.
Halfway through, visitors can get out to stretch their legs at the holiday village to wander along a trail of lights while sipping hot chocolate, ride carnival rides, get something to eat and take a photo with Santa.
Cost is $50 per carload, $150 for shuttles, limousines, buses and vans and $200 for commercial buses. For a fast pass to skip the line (available through Dec. 25), cost is $149 per car, $259 for shuttles, limousines, buses and vans and $319 for commercial buses.
