    NBC 5 and the Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary invite you to a unique holiday event, Holidays at the Heard, on December 14 and 15.

    Bundle up and experience the most unique holiday event in North Texas! Holidays at the Heard brings the beauty of the holiday season into nature. Gather the family and experience the enchanted nighttime hike through the woods with stunning light displays and holiday décor. Guest will get a glimpse of the Dinosaurs Live! exhibit along the trail (please note that the dinosaurs will not be animated during the event.) In keeping with the Heard’s role as a nature preserve, this light display is designed to enhance, rather than overpower, the sanctuary’s natural beauty.

    Local musicians, Anthony & Marina, will delight audiences with live jazz holiday music under the stars in the Heard outdoor amphitheater. Children and the young at heart will enjoy the opportunity to take a photo with Father Christmas and Mother Nature in a festive setting. Hot beverages and treats will be available for purchase.

    Tickets at the door are only $9 for adults & seniors and $5 for kids 3-12 (children 2 and under are free.) Save $2 per ticket by purchasing tickets online from November 3 through December 13. Support the Heard and have fun with the whole family at this holiday fundraiser. Tickets will be available to the public beginning November 3 at
