Things To Do- Week of 12/10 : We're in the thick of holiday events/season, y'all. I tried to add some non-holiday events in there as well, but they're mainly concerts. Great news is if you're wanting to get jolly this week (or until for Christmas for that matter) there are a TON of holiday events for you to go to. D Magazine also claims they have found The Single Best Christmas Light Display in Dallas and it looks pretty spectacular. I also added some more spacing to this post for it to make it easier to edit later and maybe a better flow to read. Who knows, it may make me feel that I have a super long post and go back to my old spacing format. ​ Top picks from do 214 Editor's Pick from Guide Live D Magazine Critics Pick Concerts happening in Dallas ​ ONGOING EVENTS Dallas Symphony: Christmas Pops until Dec 16 at Meyerson Symphony Center Irving Berlin's White Christmas until Dec 16 at Firehouse Theatre Christmas Spectacular until Dec 22 at The Star Frisco Holiday Bricktacular until December 23 at LEGOLAND Discovery Center Christmas at the Anatole until Dec 23 at the Anatole MRT Presents: A Christmas Carol until Dec 24 at Downtown McKinney Texas Ballet Theater: The Nutcracker until December 24 at Bass Performance Hall A Bur-Less-Q Nutcracker until Dec 26 at Addison Conference and Theatre Center Enchant Christmas until Dec 30 at Globe Life Park in Arlington Holiday Lights Trolley Ride until Dec 31 at Mockingbird Station.
