ARLINGTON, Texas — November 16, 2021 — Six Flags Over Texas, the Thrill Capital of Texas, will transform once again into a winter wonderland for the 36th annual Holiday in the Park event starting this Friday, November 19. More than two million twinkling lights, six new shows, and the introduction of the Holly Jolly Holiday Parade will provide the perfect backdrop for families and friends alike to continue their holiday tradition—or make a new one.

“Holiday in the Park is a staple in North Texas,” said Six Flags Over Texas Park President Ron McKenzie. “The exciting new offerings in store for this year’s event will provide even more holiday magic for our guests, making them want to visit over and over again with family and friends,” added McKenzie.

Holly Jolly Holiday Parade Nov. 26

New this season is the Holly Jolly Holiday Parade – a spectacle of lights, festive characters and seven giant floats passing through the midways of the park, including a finale float featuring Santa Claus. The parade starts on November 26.

Speaking of Jolly Ol’ Saint Nick, Merry Marketplace is home to Santa’s Outpost—where guests can stop in for a personal visit with Santa Claus himself. Children can write letters to Santa before the big day and spend time writing a special letter to military members and first responders.
