Christmas in Texas is taking some getting used to for sure. We wore shorts when we decorated for Christmas this week. And there is definitely no snow in San Antonio. But there is for sure no shortage of ways to get in the Christmas spirit.
Christmas at Six Flags Fiesta Texas is not to be missed. If you are looking to get into the holiday spirit there is no better place to start then Six Flags Fiesta Texas Holiday in the Park. The park is all decked out in it’s finest and it looks amazing!

Make sure you download the app here and check the park hours before heading out. Holiday hours vary by day and are much different than the summer hours. You can also find show times in the app. But I love the holiday park map and show guide. It really makes it so much easier for me to plan our evening if I can see exactly what is happening and where. So grab a map on your way in or bookmark this post so you can bring up these photos while you’re there.
We haven’t seen all the Christmas shows yet, but top priority for my littles is always character shows. So we headed to Sangerfest Hall for the Looney Tunes show. They did not disappoint. So much energy. I don’t know how they do it, but I love it.

After the show we rode a few rides and had dinner using our dining plan. The dining plan is worth it’s weight in gold. Best thing I could’ve done was buy that premium dining plan when it was on sale. We use it all the time. More on the dining plan here.
The Christmas tree lighting at six Flags Fiesta Texas is so pretty. The tree is massive. Standing at 60 ft tall it is lit every day that the park is open at 6:00pm. There’s not a bad seat for the tree lighting, but if you want an actual seat you are going to need to arrive at least an hour early. We decided to eat dinner first and then sneak out the side door. We had a great view of the tree with almost no one in front of us. We did not have a great view of the a cappella group that goes on right before the tree lighting. But we did get to see Sylvester and Daffy bust a move “backstage” which was really ten times better than a choreographed show anyway. See a preview of that here: here. Or follow me on Facebook here to see the full video plus other great clips, tips, and tricks before they hit the blog.
So as I said before our spot was great, but not perfect. If you want to see the Tinseltones perform you’ll want a better seat. Their show starts at 5:45. There are two other Tinseltone shows at 3:30 and 7:30 in front of the tree if you want to catch them at another time. Watch the tree lighting ceremony here.
As soon as the Christmas tree lights, Santa can be seen on the rooftop of Rockville high and then there’s a few fireworks shot off. We had a hard time seeing Santa and the fireworks. But we had the best spot for the snow. It’s actually bubbles, but it shot off right over our heads. All the children loved it!
The tree is beautiful and the street is decorated so nicely you’re definitely going to want to take lots of photos.
Even the palm trees are lit up. How cute is that?
So that’s it for now. Obviously there are still lots of shows to see and review. I’ll try to get to them all, and keep posting lots of info. Next week we head to SeaWorld San Antonio for their Christmas lights. I hear it’s amazing! Also December 2nd is the ornament giveaway for annual passholders. So I definitely don’t want to miss that! Merry Christmas y’all!!
