Frisco is a great place to call home no matter what time of year it is. The small-town feel, rising home values, low unemployment and close proximity to Dallas are just a few things that make Frisco one of Texas’ best cities. During the holidays, Frisco becomes even more spectacular. Main Street transforms into a wonderland of treats, games and fun for the entire family. Frisco Square becomes an enchanted realm of twinkling lights. Even jolly old St. Nicholas pays a visit!
Here’s a look at some of the upcoming holiday events in the city of Frisco. Be sure to mark your calendars and register in advance!
22nd Annual Merry Main Street
Saturday, Dec. 1
5 pm to 9 pm
This free holiday event is a local favorite. There will be several booths lined up and down Main Street, featuring artisans, food vendors and businesses, as well as nonprofit organizations. Witness the annual tree lighting at 6 pm at Simpson Plaza but be sure to get a photo with Santa before you leave! As a new feature this year, Merry Main Street will put on an amazing choreographed light and fireworks show sponsored by Liberty Mutual Insurance. These are just the highlights of the 22nd Annual Merry Main Street – there will be lots more to enjoy, including festive music, live reindeer, model train displays and horse-drawn carriage rides just to name a few!
