Twinkling lights are part of the magic of the holidays. Drive around and experience all of the Christmas spirit around the community

What sounds like a better holiday tradition than ice skating, then sipping hot chocolate, followed by driving around town to look at Christmas lights?

Mineral Wells is the perfect place to start a new tradition with your family!

Once again this year, Merry Wells has organized a Lighted Driving Tour for families to enjoy holiday lights at night from the comfort of their cars.

Map of Lighted Driving Tour

There are 22 stops on this years tour that takes you from one end of town to the other.

The driving tour is available any evening at your leisure but if you decide to do it on a Sunday night, be sure you to stop at Magpie Inn for the Pop-Up Hot Cocoa Bar every weekend before Christmas.

Each Sunday in December Magpie Inn will be offering hot cocoa between 6-7pm on their front porch.

Bring the family and grab your cocoa as you venture out to admire Christmas lights around town! The hot cocoa bar will be set up on the front porch and stocked with all the fixings! They will also have maps for the Christmas lights home tour, so Magpie Inn is the perfect starting point for your driving tour.

Merry Wells on Ice is a synthetic ice rink in Poston’s Square. Palo Pinto County kids under 14 skate free on Fridays

And if you are looking to make it a truly magical evening, why not start the fun off at Merry Wells on Ice and Ice Skate under the lights at Poston Square?

Work up an appetite for that yummy hot cocoa you plan to indulge at Magpie Inn before your tour of lights.

Isn’t it the most wonderful time of the year?!?!
