It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas here in Houston. The Magical Winter Lights is a lantern festival that covers over 20 acres and is located in La Marque, Texas just outside of Houston.
November 15, 2019 – January 5, 2020
I have partnered with Magical Winter Lights for this post. The best part for me, is they had zero restrictions when it came to my blog. Let me start by saying the festival has a really neat Asian vibe to it, which makes it even more fun. I love the dragon on the castle.
Please note, that online ticket sales end at 4:30pm daily. After that, you can purchase tickets at the box office on site.
$5 -cash only
You start the festival by entering the castle which will lead you to over l00 lighted lantern attractions. It takes about 2 hours to complete the entire festival.
The Kingdom, The Village, The Dino, The East, Houston, The Space, The Ice, and The Sea.
My personal favorite is The Sea. The attraction is so amazing you can get lost exploring it’s beauty.
The Dino Area
If you have a child who loves dinosaurs, this section is for you.
Looking for Instagram spots? This area is for you. The dinosaur tent is full of picture perfect setups that will insure you get some great pictures.
Food & Drink
**They do not sell alcohol. I repeat they do not sell alcohol. My husband was a little upset because he wanted a beer.**
The food is the typical, yummy Texas fair food, such as: turkey legs, nachos, chili cheese hot dogs, corn dogs, and funnel cakes.
Look for the booth that sells really cool cotton candy on a stick. You will need to head towards the back of the festival to find this booth.
This cotton candy flower cost a pricey $15.00 and a Pikachu cost around $25. I’ve never seen cotton candy turned into art, so I was beyond thrilled to find this booth. Here is a picture of the flower cotton candy we bought. So cool!
Even if you decide not make a purchase …it’s still fun to watch him make it.
Carnival Games & Rides
You must purchase tickets for the games and rides. You can even purchase a wrist band, which will give you unlimited access to all the rides.
They have a wide selection of games.
They have plenty of big kid rides.
Along with a large selection of toddler rides.
This festival is the perfect family event for those who just want a few hours of Holiday cheer. Now plan your day at the festival before it’s too late. Hurry up! December will be over before you know it!
