Coppell’s Holiday Tree Lighting Moves to Andrew Brown Park East

​Coppell's kick off to the holidays is just around the corner, on Saturday, December 7 at 6:00 PM. This year's celebration is moving to the park! Andrew Brown Park East will be aglow with holiday lights and activities. Marvel at the lighted 50ft tree, enjoy a lighted wagon and pet mini-parade around the park, meet live reindeer, and take a photo with Santa Claus!​

The new location isn't the only change this year. This year's lighted parade is going motor-free! Join us for a mini-parade in the park, featuring wagons, strollers, bikes, pets, families, community groups all decked out with twinkling holiday lights! Line the parade route early for the best spot. Watch for the "Best Individual," "Most Creative," and "Most Holiday Spirit" winners and pick your favorites as they go by. The parade will travel around the west lawn at Andrew Brown Park East. For safety reasons, all entries in the mini-parade must be non-motorized.

Interested in joining the lighted mini-parade lineup? Round up your organization, business, or friends and register your parade entry! There is no charge; however, all organizations must register by Monday, November 25 and have a representative at the mandatory parade meeting on Monday, December 2. Parade applications are located here.

After the parade, experience holiday fun at the park! The crowd will countdown to the lighting of the 50ft tree, the largest tree yet. Enjoy bounce houses, face painting, holiday decoration crafting stations, and take photos with Santa and his many helpers. Listen as traditional carolers perform your holiday favorites while snacking on holiday treats, available for purchase from Liberation Coffee and Doughnut Snob.

Can't make it to the park on December 7? You can join in the holiday cheer all month long! In Coppell's newest holiday season tradition, stop by the Family Community Holiday Tree and donate an ornament! Share a bauble that represents your favorite hobbies, places, or family – the possibilities are endless! The tree will be on display all month long at the Grand Pavilion at Andrew Brown Park East. Please note, all donations are final and will not be returned/replaced at the conclusion of the month. "There is nothing that brings a family together better than decorating their tree at the holidays. We wanted to create a physical representation of the Coppell family in this tree and hope that you will join us by sharing an ornament that represents you," said Sunday Smith, Special Events Supervisor.

Andrew Brown Park East is located at 260 E. Parkway Blvd. For more information on the Holiday Tree Lighting, visit For information on other upcoming events sponsored by Coppell Parks and Recreation, call 972-462-5100, visit, or follow us on Facebook and Instagram! ​
