Christmas in the Park

Wow! Has it really been 30 years for Christmas in the Park? Apparently so! I've been attending this event since I was a little girl, and now I get to share it with my own kids. My son swoons for this event! Sadly, this year, they are missing the snow machines. Boo hoo. Word on the street is budget cuts. Well, who can blame them? Still, I am sure a campaign to save the snow machine would have covered the cost just fine.

But let's not talk about the missing snow machines where there's still so much to love about Christmas in the Park. For example...I love that it can fit any budget from a free night of fun on the town, $20 for ice skating and a hot cocoa, or start the evening off at The Fairmont, where you can get into the spirit with a hot toddy, then make your way over the park to enjoy the lights.

Christmas in the Park starts this Friday, November 27 and runs through December 27 (me thinks this is a bit shorter this year! It usually goes right until New Year???). The tree lighting will take place on November 27 at 5:30. Check out their website for more details and start making plans!
