GALVESTON, TX – There he is, Santa dropping in from the North Pole into Moody Gardens for the 12th Annual Festival of Lights opening.

After his dramatic entrance, Santa would then throw the switch to illuminate over a million lights for the 100 something Christmas displays across a mile long winter wonderland.

The Festival of Lights runs at Moody Gardens until January 4th; and they have one of the area’s only outdoor rinks and other fun stuff for the family to check out. After all, Christmas truly is, right around the corner.
