When there are too many chefs in the kitchen, get a bigger kitchen. Or, just head to Fair Park, where more than 1,000 chefs will show off their culinary skills in a live cookoff.

Shout it from the rooftops — Santa is coming! And so is everyone’s favorite elf when “Elf: The Musical” comes to Bass Hall this month. Based on the 2003 movie starring Will Ferrell and Zooey Deschanel, this modern Christmas favorite follows a young orphan named Buddy who crawls into Santa’s bag and grows up at the North Pole, believing he’s an elf despite the fact that he’s towering over everyone else.

Home For The Holidays Tree Lighting

A crowd gathers outside at nightfall, staring up at the tall Christmas tree in the middle of Southlake Town Square. The sun has set and a hush settles over the community. A countdown begins. Three, two, one, and sud- denly thousands of brilliant, twinkling lights are switched on — and it’s officially Christmastime! The Christmas tree lighting ceremony is a time-honored tradition in Southlake Town Square. It’s a magical evening full of awe and wonder, with the spirit of the season in the air. Friends, family and neighbors gather together to mingle, listen to live music and celebrate with a firework show as the Christmas tree glows beautifully.
