World’s Tallest Indoor Christmas Tree at Galleria Dallas

By  | 


The world’s tallest indoor Christmas tree will wow shoppers at Galleria Dallas during the holiday season. Of course, a tree this big takes a little longer to install. Everyone is invited to watch a crew of 50 work around the clock November 3-6 to set up and decorate the 95-foot tall tree in Center Court at Galleria Dallas.

The iconic tree features almost a half-million lights, 10,000 ornaments, and a 100-pound, 10-foot-tall LED star. The Galleria Dallas Christmas tree also performs several times a day, as it’s illuminated with choreography and holiday music.
