Holidays in the city of Ennis, Texas get bigger and better every year. In addition to offering fabulous holiday events in December, Ennis is adding an outstanding light display that warrants a trip to Ellis County. 

The Downtown Ennis Rooftop Lights 2020 are debuting this year. The dynamic LED lights beautifully top the district’s newly-renovated Dallas Street above the downtown shopping district. Visitors can enjoy the lights from their own vehicles or from wagon and carriage rides, available the weekends of December 5-6 and 11-12.

On December 3, adults can shop at the Christmas Bluebonnet Market from 5-9 p.m. and visit downtown boutiques during Sip Shop and Stroll from 5-8 p.m.

Daytime activities are also available. At Cookies with Mrs. Claus on December 5, children can decorate gingerbread houses and sing holiday songs.


Lucky's CC Car show and Toy Drive occurs 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the downtown district December 5. Bring a wrapped toy to donate and enjoy Romero’s Mini Donuts and Elite BBQ while checking out the hot wheels.

The Elf Seek and Find game challenges kids of all ages to search for elves inside the window displays of downtown shops. Young participants can pick up prizes at the Ennis Welcome Center, where a train display awaits.

Kids also won't want to miss the chance to sled down The Snow Hill on an inner tube December 11-12.
