Lights in the Heights — a community holiday celebration in the Woodland Heights neighborhood of Houston, Texas.

** This evening’s Friday Night Lights event is cancelled due to rain. **


Kick off your Lights in the Heights weekend at Friday Night Lights on Friday, December 7 from 5:00 – 9:00 pm on Norhill Esplanade. At this family-friendly festivity, neighbors can gather around the campfire and roast marshmallows or enjoy dinner from a local food truck under the glow of Jurassic Christmas displays.

Lights in the Heights merchandise will be on sale all night, so be sure to grab your private party signs and keepsakes. Your pre-ordered merchandise, including cloisonné ornaments, aprons, and tea towels, will be ready for pick-up. Some of our generous sponsors, including Memorial Hermann Greater Heights and H-E-B, will also be at the event to spread some holiday cheer. View the lights around the neighborhood by hopping on the locally famous hayride, starting at 5:30. Children can take part in a 30-year-old neighborhood tradition at the craft tent and decorate a luminaria. And while you are enjoying all the fun, keep your ear out for sleigh bells because Santa and Mrs. Claus will arrive at 6:30. There is no cost for this event but there is an opportunity to give back.

“Share the Joy, Share a Toy” with Operation: Stocking Stuffer and benefit thousands of underprivileged children in our area. Each holiday season, the Houston Fire Department coordinates thousands of toy donations, culminating in the Great Toy Giveaway. To give back as a neighborhood, Woodland Heights will host a toy drive in coordination with the Lights in the Heights festivities. Bring a new, unwrapped toy to the Norhill Esplanade on Friday, December 7 from 5-9 pm or Saturday, December 8 from 9 am-12 pm. Place your gift in the large donation boxes with the Operation: Stocking Stuffer logo.

Please bring the whole family to this event on Friday, December 7. It's a favorite of kids of all ages!
