What is Wassail Weekend? It is just a fussy old English word for hot cider. Each year, some downtown merchants will stir up their best recipe to give free tastings for all ages during the festivities of the annual Denton Holiday Lighting Festival. This event falls on the Friday that is one week after Thanksgiving, and tastings will be served during Denton Holiday Lighting Festival by some merchants. In addition to Friday, more downtown merchants will give free tastings while you shop and dine downtown on Saturday afternoon, or until the Wassail runs out.  

 VOTE button is after the list of Wassail Stops.
