2020 Holiday Events in Collin County For Socially Distant Winter Fun



PLANO, TX – As winter approaches, colored lights flicker on, nativity scenes appear, and the metroplex’s most extravagant holiday events open their doors. While 2020 may have put a stop to large holiday gatherings and mistletoe hanging from the ceiling, there are plenty of drive-thru holiday events and experiences to the area.

From portraits with Santa, to drive-through toy drives and a giant hand-made Christmas pyramid, the DFW metroplex has something for everyone this holiday season.

The Grinch’s Grotto, Stonebriar

Visit the Grinch’s Cave at Stonebriar Centre for a private meet and greet with the Grinch himself. Book a visit, and you’ll receive a free holiday photo with The Grinch and a few special holiday giveaways. Of all the holiday events in the metroplex, this one truly feels in the spirit of 2020.

Christmas in the Frisco Square

Frisco presents a huge, choreographed light and music show at the square, daily from 6 – 10 p.m. This show is free to the public. Visitors can tune in to 107.3 FM on the radio in their vehicles, or listen to the music piped through speakers as they take a walk through the Square.

The show has over 180,000 lights, 200 dancing snowflakes, 10 miles of wiring, and 8 miles of extension cords. This year is going to be greater than ever before. They also offer ice skating, and there’s a toy drive with Operation Once in a Lifetime (OOIAL).

The Star in Frisco

The Dallas Cowboys host their fourth annual Christmas Extravaganza. Only this year, it’s virtual. All season long, fans can watch the Christmas Extravaganza online.

On Nov. 27, Dec. 11, and Dec. 24 at 6 p.m., tune in on Dallas Cowboys Facebook and Dallas Cowboys Twitter, as well as on-demand at Marvel at the 20-minute show, including the lighting of The Star’s 67-foot Christmas tree and a performance showcasing the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders, Dallas Cowboys Rhythm and Blue Dancers and Rookie Squad, Dallas Cowboys Drumline, mascot Rowdy, Santa, and special Dallas Cowboys guest appearances.
