Kick off the holidays at Galleria Dallas

gx3362It’s never too early to start plotting your strategy for Black Friday. This is the one time of year when competitive deal hunting is totally acceptable. Galleria Dallas is open from 8AM to 10PM this Black Friday (store hours vary), but it’s about way more than just shopping here.

Yes, the holiday deals are incredible, but Black Friday also marks the first day of a host of holiday events your entire family can enjoy.

For starters, be sure to mark your list to swing by when we kick off our Macy’s Grand Christmas Tree Lighting Celebration at noon. We’ll flip the switch on our four-story indoor holiday tree, the tallest indoor Christmas tree in the country! If you miss Friday’s show, join us again at 6PM Saturday, November 28, for the tree lighting and performances by 2014 Olympic gold medalists Charlie White and Meryl Davis, as well as Missile Toes, the back-flipping Santa who shoots fireworks from his skates. How’s that for Christmas spirit?

Black Friday also kicks off Slappy’s Holiday Circus! Each performance lasts 30 minutes and features puppets, magicians, clowns, contortionists and jugglers in a fast-paced show with a European holiday twist. Performances take place on Level 1 near Belk on the following days:

  • Friday, November 27, at 1PM & 3PM
  • Saturday, November 28, at 1PM & 3PM
  • Saturday, December 5, at 1PM & 3PM
  • Saturday, December 12, at 1PM & 3PM
  • Saturday, December 19, at 1PM & 3PM

As soon as Thanksgiving weekend has come and gone, kids are breaking out their holiday wish lists and begging to go see Santa. Starting November 21 through Christmas Eve, bring your little ones to see Santa Claus in his village, located on Level 2 near Belk.

If you really want to immerse yourself in holiday magic, visit our Facebook page between November 23 and 30 and enter to win the “Ultimate Holiday Experience,” where one lucky winner will score a one-night stay at Westin Galleria, dinner for four at Mi Cocina, VIP access to both the Christmas Tree Lighting and Santa’s Village. To top it off, we’re throwing in a $500 Galleria Dallas gift card for you to splurge on shopping!

Make sure to check out our extended hours online. We look forward to spending our holidays with you!
