Christmas Tree at Market Street

Market Street in Lights Christmas Tree


The 70-foot tall Christmas tree in Market Street is decorated with hundreds of red, gold, silver, and green ornaments and topped with a gold tinsel star. Each evening the tree comes to life from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m., for Market Street in Lights as the light and musical display performs on the half-hour.

The Woodlands Mall Christmas Tree at Daytime

The Woodlands Mall Christmas Tree at Night


The Christmas tree located in The Courtyard at The Woodlands Mall is 40-foot tall, has hundreds of color-changing lights and is topped with bright color-changing starburst. I highly recommend staying a while to look at this tree, an unbelievable LED light show occurs on the hour from 5 to 11 p.m. nightly. The synchronized light and music display includes dancing Christmas decorations and moving shapes going across the entirety of the tree. It's truly an amazing sight to see at night!

Christmas Tree outside The Ice Rink


There's nothing like a photo op before or after skating at The Woodlands Ice Rink! Adorned with velvet red ribbons, the Christmas tree is just outside the entrance to the seasonal skating rink by The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion. There is also a bench just in front of the tree, allowing you to snap the perfect holiday photo.

The Woodlands Winter Wonderland

Illuminated doves, presents, snowflakes, and other characters can be seen along the pathway.

Adorned with gold bows, the Christmas tree at Hughes Landing stands just steps away from Restaurant Row. Its convenient location makes this tree the perfect location to take a before-dinner photo!


Near The Woodlands Waterway, the Christmas tree at Waterway Square sits in front of the 120-foot long fountain. Enjoy the ambiance that the tree and synchronized fountain provide as the water dazzles to the beat of holiday songs including Frosty the Snowman, Winter Wonderland, Feliz Navidad, and more!

Insider TipThe fountain comes to life every 15 minutes on weekdays from Noon to 2 PM and 6 to 11 PM. On weekends, shows run every 15 minutes from Noon to 11 PM.
