HOLIDAY IN THE PLAZA
SATURDAY, DECEMBER 3rd and Sunday, December 4th, 2022
LEVY EVENT PLAZA
On Saturday, December 3rd and Sunday December 4th, the Las Colinas Association created a magical winter wonderland at the second annual Holiday in the Plaza. Through out the two day event over 5,000 attendees kicked off the holiday season in Levy Event Plaza to enjoy a lakeside Ferris wheel, ice skating rink, marketplace, photos with Santa and much more. In lieu of admission, attendees arrived with armfuls of new, unwrapped toys to donate to Irving Police and Fire’s Blue Christmas drive.
The curated holiday market featured over 50 artisan vendors. While attendees shopped, they could sip on bubbles or brews from the Bubble Bus Co. If coffee was more their style, Travelin’ Tom’s Coffee Truck offered iced and hot coffee options for that caffeine boost. Hot cocoa was also available for the kiddos.
After shopping for those one-of-a-kind gifts, adults and children alike enjoyed the complimentary ice-skating rink and Ferris wheel. The Ferris wheel towered over the Las Colinas Urban center, giving attendees incredible views of the breathtaking skyline and Lake Carolyn. Attendees enjoyed modern hits and holiday favorites from DJ LC throughout the event.
There was no shortage of activities for the kids with complimentary face painting and arts and crafts. Photos with Santa allowed families to get ahead on their Christmas card photos while giving back. 100% of proceeds were donated to the Blue Christmas drive. Over $4,000 was raised to help underprivileged children and their families.
As a attendees worked up quite an appetite from all the activities, there was no shortage of food trucks to choose from. American Gothic Pizza, Righteous BBQ, Happy Vegan and Nacho Loco all served savory options. While Melt Ice Creams and Fire and Ice Treats satisfied those with a sweet tooth.
A special thank you to CBRE (600 E. Las Colinas) and Dominus Commercial (Waterway Tower) for allowing us to use their garages for attendee, volunteer and staff parking.
