Wonderland of Lights


Make your holiday magical with a trip to the 30th Annual anniversary celebration of Marshall Texas' famed Wonderland of Lights Festival!

The City of Marshall, Marshall Convention and Visitors Bureau, and Marshall Main Street Program invite you to celebrate our pearl anniversary this holiday season.

Conceived in 1987, Wonderland of Lights rivals the best Christmas lighting events in the country. Millions of white lights illuminate the historic Harrison County Courthouse as downtown Marshall is transformed into a Winter Wonderland. 



Enjoy our outdoor ice skating rink, carousel and train rides, Santa’s Workshop, horse-drawn carriage rides and live entertainment.*

Each Saturday of the season features a special event including our Opening Lighting Ceremony, Wassail Walk on Small Business Saturday, Jingle Bell Run, Lighted Christmas Parade, Outdoor Christmas Market, and Wonderland of Sites. The fun doesn't stop there! Check out our calendar for more scheduled events, where you're sure to find something for everyone!

*Winter weather in East Texas can be unpredictable. Check with us daily on our social media sites by 4:00 p.m. to get up-to-date information on inclement weather arrangements.
