Discover an immersive Christmas experience at beautiful Bayou Bend Collection and Gardens. A dazzling bridge brings visitors into a winter wonderland featuring thousands of lights throughout the 14-acre estate! Get in the holiday spirit with carolers, a faux-snowball play area, a handcrafted model train circling a 12-foot tree, games for all ages, an outdoor movie screen for Christmas cartoons, and more—all on 14 acres of gardens and art nestled in River Oaks. Plus, Santa visits the Christmas Village tent for photos every night, December 15–23!

Holiday-themed tours of Ima Hogg’s historic mansion crafted by Todd Waite feature live actors, theatrical effects, and Christmas decorations.
