Wasn't really what I expected, but not the fault of Heritage Village or Groupon. It was described to me differently by a friend who had been there before and while it IS definitely my cup of tea, the others that went with me didn't enjoy it, and therefore, I didn't get to enjoy it. So, I would definitely go back again - most likely by myself, or with a different crowd - to really take the time and check it out.

A 40-year tradition, Candlelight bedecks the historic grounds of Dallas Heritage Village’s 1840s–1910s township in period-appropriate holiday décor as local performers fill the streets with dance and song. Guests can opt to trundle down candle-lined paths in a carriage pulled by a dutiful pair of mammoth-jack donkeys named Nip and Tuck ($5/person, not included with this Groupon) or a dutiful tractor ($3/person, not included with this Groupon) desperately hoping for a sweet nickname. Meanwhile, dancers and choirs emerge in caroling clusters from the Main Street Stage, Pilot Grove Church, and Renner School steps. Storytellers gather crowds in knots around charming seasonal tales as artisans demonstrate the finer points of hand-weaving baskets, the blacksmith’s trade, and shoeing horses with elf slippers. The spirits of Candelights past haunt framed photos in the Candlelight Memories exhibit, which hang still in counterpoint to the lively interaction of the village’s cast of historical interpreters.

Jolly Saint Nicholas himself poses for photographs with families and adoring fans at the bandstand, collecting children’s holiday wishes and teaching adults how to use calligraphy to fill out their taxes. Homemade baked goods provided by the Guild of Dallas Heritage Village tempt tongues with the heady aroma of sugar and butter, and cash-only food trucks dispense hearty fare to patrons and curbside carolers alike.

About Dallas Heritage Village

At Dallas Heritage Village at Old City Park, visitors step back in time more than 100 years and immerse themselves in the buildings and lifestyles of those who populated the land from 1840 to 1910. These historic structures have been slowly relocated over the last century to represent north-central Texas's storied past in one location: Dallas Heritage Village, the town’s first city park. Spanning 20 acres, the village is populated by 38 historic structures including a railroad complex, farmstead, church, and pioneer and Victorian homes, where guides (often donning period clothing) await to educate guests on period customs and early Dallas history.
