Thousands filled the Galleria area after Thanksgiving dinner for fireworks and the chance to meet Santa during the annual tree lighting and fireworks display.

The family favorite began at 4pm with holiday entertainment, including bands and choirs. Holiday characters and reindeer wandered through the crowds as they enjoyed some tasty post-dinner snacks.

Dozens of trees lining Post Oak from San Felipe to Westheimer were lit at 7pm as the fireworks display began.

The event benefits the Houston Area Urban League and Be an Angel.
