WinterFest Festival and Parade

Our special holiday presentation of WinterFest, “North Pole Adventures,” includes a variety of family-friendly activities including the official tree-lighting ceremony with Mayor Debra March and Santa, gift and craft fair, food vendors, entertainment and an activity area where children can decorate cookies, mail a letter to Santa and build a toy in Santa’s workshop. The two-day festival is topped off with a spectacular evening light parade. WinterFest is open to all ages. Friday night festivities include the opening of the holiday season with a tree-lighting ceremony and festival. Saturday’s festivities conclude with our fabulous Evening Light Parade in the Water Street District.

WinterFest is open to all ages, from the young to the young at heart.
