Discover an immersive Christmas experience at beautiful Bayou Bend Collection and Gardens. A dazzling bridge brings you into a winter wonderland featuring thousands of lights throughout the estate. Get in the holiday spirit with carolers, a faux-snow slide for sledding, a cotton-snowball play area, a handcrafted model train circling a 15-foot tree, games for all ages, and more—all on 14 acres of gardens and art nestled in River Oaks. You can also take photos with Santa, who visits through December 23! Holiday-themed tours of Ima Hogg’s historic mansion feature live actors, theatrical effects, and Christmas decorations.
