For three decades, thousands of North Texans have come to visit Galleria Dallas and the country’s tallest indoor Christmas Tree for their famed Grand Tree Lighting Celebrations, where dozens of Olympic and World Champion figure skaters have joined Missile Toes, Galleria’s back-flipping Santa, and nearly 100 youth skaters in free performances that run through the holiday season. This year, COVID-19 has forced a change in the event. On Sunday, December 6, Galleria Dallas will partner with the Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center (DCAC) to create one very special, private, socially-distanced event featuring Olympic figure skater and Dancing with the Stars contestant Mirai Nagasu, former USA Men’s champion Ryan Bradley, and Olympic hopefuls and North Texas locals Ashley Cain-Gribble and Timothy LeDuc.
In addition to the celebrity skaters, fans will enjoy the skaters from the Galleria Ice Skating Center, a special visit from The Grinch, and indoor fireworks!
Families attending will be assigned to a private pod, where they can enjoy the holiday magic while safely distanced. Pods safely hold 2-4 people and can be purchased for $150 at https://dcac.org/getinvolved/events/galleria/
