Magical Winter Lights, the exotic lantern festival that's come to the Sam Houston Race Park, continues to attract crowds drawn in by the large scale lightshow.
Houston Press Art Director Monica Fuentes took her video camera out to the fairgrounds to capture five of the exhibits that especially caught her eye. There's more, of course, but these will give you an idea of the display.
Her two observations since making the trip:
If you have or can borrow kids, take them. They'll especially love the dinosaurs.
And after the recent (and continuing) rains, leave your stiletto heels at home in favor of flat-soled boots. Organizers have put down straw to soak up the extra moisture but the footing is still not high-heel friendly.
5 to 10 p.m. Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays; 1 to 11 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays; 1 to 10 p.m. Sundays. Through January 10, 2016. Sam Houston Race Park, 7575 North Sam Houston Parkway West. For information, visit magicalwinterlights.com. $16 to $27.
