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.

My personal favorite is The Sea. The attraction is so amazing you can get lost exploring it’s beauty.

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.
