Light Up the Holidays at Centennial Park


Irving’s Centennial Park at 444 W. Second St., is lit up for the holidays. This year’s display is open to the public from dusk to 10 p.m. Dec. 1-25, weather permitting. The free light display affords a leisurely stroll through one of the jewels of Irving’s Heritage District, Centennial Park.

It takes thousands of strands of lights to cover the trees. In addition, Centennial Park’s walls, fences and bridge are covered with lights, and walkways are lighted on each side to keep pathways visible for visitors after dark. 

This holiday tradition is staffed 24/7. On-duty employees wear uniforms day and night, clearly identifying them as city staff, and visitors can ask any questions they have about the decorations.
