The Ultimate Guide to Holiday Events in Houston 2020

While this guide is sponsored by Reliant, all of our thoughts are proudly our own. We are proud to partner with Houston-based Reliant on all of their initiatives.

This time of year is magical for holiday events in Houston. Not only is the weather cooling down and holiday cheer is filling the air, there are light displays everywhere. There is no better year to use the magic of the season around us to bring joy to our families and celebrate the holiday season. There’s also no better place than Houston to experience all of the cheer the holiday season has to offer.  From tree lightings to hay rides, to ice skating and hot chocolate with Santa, we have compiled all things holiday fun into one ULTIMATE guide to help make this season the best one yet! 

We have partnered with Reliant to bring you this comprehensive guide to holiday events in and around Houston. We are excited to celebrate the season with our family and friends safely through these reimagined holiday festivities.

This year’s Reliant Lights Mayor’s Holiday Spectacular event has been virtually reimagined to celebrate the sights and sounds of the holiday season. The spectacular event is a local holiday tradition of festive entertainment, lights and, of course, the towering 70-foot White Fir tree in front of City Hall. This year’s entertainment includes Robert Glasper, Ledisi, American Idol’s Laci Kaye Booth, Disney’s DCappella group and other regional and local talent. The show will be broadcast on ABC 13 on Friday, December 18 from 7-8 p.m.

KHOU 11 Secret Santa Toy Drive

{November 9th – December 11th}

In addition to participating in all the holiday events in Houston that you can fit in your schedule, give Santa a helping hand this year from November 9th – December 11th, and donate to the KHOU 11 Secret Santa Toy Drive. KHOU 11 is once again teaming up with The Salvation Army, Reliant and additional sponsors to bring holiday joy to underprivileged children across the Houston area. With impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic, the need for Christmas assistance has never been greater. Your generosity can help rescue Christmas for those in need. Houstonians can donate from the comfort of their homes by visiting or drop off new, unwrapped toys at Houston-area Salvation Army locations.

Connect with Reliant…

The joy of community and the spirit of generosity make this season the most wonderful time of the year. At Reliant, our commitment to the communities where we live and work is as strong as our Texas roots. On behalf of Reliant, we hope you have a joyous holiday season!

Jennifer is a native outside-the-loop’er growing up and living in the Richmond/Rosenberg area. She has a Bachelors in theology and political science from Texas Lutheran University and a Masters in Liberal Arts from Texas Christian University. She and her husband Greg met in 2010 through and fell in love on their first date. They married exactly one year later and have fought lovingly and constantly since. They have two amazingly brilliant girls, Kaitlyn {June 2013} and Elizabeth {June 2015} who Jen stays home with during the day. When Jen is not curled in a little ball rocking back and forth with Peppa Pig on in the background, she can be found crafting with her Silhouette and/or binge watching The Office for the millionth time. Jen has an uncanny ability to be comfortable in almost any situation put in front of her, thanks to growing up in politics and on the debate team. Before having kids of her own, she had the opportunity to help other kids through teaching, youth ministry, and generally being a helpful, kind soul. You can check out more about Jen on IG @themommymiddle.
