It's about that time of year to get lit! Of course, we're talking about light bulbs shining brightly. Farmers Branch residents and visitors are invited to experience the lighting of the new 40 foot Christmas Tree on December 4 at The Grove at Mustang Station. The annual holiday kick-off includes a low level level fireworks show suitable for all ages to enjoy. This event is free and open to the public.
