The holidays don't begin until we kick it off with a bang (and some fireworks!) at Mansfield City Hall. Enjoy a holiday market, let the kids play on the real ice slide or street hockey rink and of course, visit with Santa & Mrs. Claus. Help us ring in the season with our official city tree-lighting ceremony at 6:30 p.m. followed immediately by a gorgeous fireworks display. Stick around until 8 p.m. to welcome our special guests, live penguins from the Dallas Zoo.
