What is Christmas in the Park?
Each year, the two-acre Plaza De Cesar Chavez is transformed into a holiday fantasy with over 60 musical and animated exhibits, glittering lights and the 60-foot Community Giving Tree. Some of the original displays housed in one of the largest exhibits, the Lima Train, include a melting snowman, caroling mice and elf woodcrafters.
When is the park open?
Christmas in the Park officially opens for the 2012 season on November 23, 2012 at 5:30pm starting with the Community Giving Tree Lighting Ceremony. After, the event is open every day, including Christmas, from 9am to midnight through January 1, 2013. For a complete schedule of all the events going on at the park, click here.
How old do you have to be to volunteer?
All volunteers under the age of 18 must have a Minor Consent form signed by a parent or guardian to participate in the student volunteer program. An adult supervisor is needed to accompany all students under the age of 16. All volunteers, regardless of age, must sign a volunteer service form before the start of the event. Before you arrive at your volunteer appointment, please print out all waiver forms and bring them to the event, signed if you are a minor.
