Holiday in the Park began in 1985 at one of Fiesta Texas' sister parks, Six Flags Over Texas. Six Flags Fiesta Texas officially began including Holiday in the Park in their season in 2007. However, Fiesta Texas is no stranger to Christmas events. A similar event, Lone Star Christmas, took place in the park up to 1997. Lone Star Christmas was no small feat for the park. The event featured a "tree of lights" that spanned 115 feet tall up the quarry wall topped with a 12-foot star. In 1993, the park recorded the usage of 16 miles worth of Christmas lights, 5,000 feet of garland, and more than 500 Christmas bows. Entertainment included a 50s themed Christmas show as well as a Christmas dinner show in Sangerfest Halle. To top it off, Rattler was decorated with a 60-foot tall star on its lift hill.

Recently, Holiday in the Park has expanded all throughout the chain. In 2007, Discovery Kingdom joined Six Flags Fiesta Texas by adding the event to their season. In 2012, the event expanded to Mexico and Great Escape. 2014-2016 saw the addition of Holiday in the Park to Magic Mountain, Six Flags Over Georgia, Great Adventure, St. Louis, and America. The event continues to be one of the most popular and exciting times for Six Flags parks. Though Holiday in the Park is still rather young at Fiesta Texas, it has become a popular staple to the San Antonio area. Guests flock to see the Rockville Christmas Tree standing 60 feet tall, the decor all around the park, and the incredibly popular Majesty of Christmas, which takes place in Zaragoza Theatre. As yearly attendance to the event rises, Fiesta Texas continues to expand by adding more activities and entertainment as the seasons progress.
