If you're looking for something new and different to do with the family this holiday, check out 'Twas The Lights Before Christmas this weekend or next weekend at the East Texas Fairgrounds in Tyler. The East Texas Fairgrounds are being transformed into a whimsical winter wonderland and is being filled with light displays in a walk-thru setting. Some of the featured lighted displays are the 12 Days of Christmas and the zoo display. In addition to the lighted displays there is shopping, you can indulge yourself on holiday treats, mail a letter to Santa, catch special performances from area choirs, bands and more and check out the living nativity scene too.

'Twas The Lights Before Christmas opens Friday, December 7th from 5:30p - 9:30p with a $5 admission charge and continues through December 9th and again December 13th - 16th. Part of the proceeds go toward scholarship funds and other education based programs thanks to the Park Of East Texas.
