Christmas In The Park

Christmas in the Park is an annual event that has been held in Downtown San Jose for as long as I can remember. The magical tradition first started up in the 1950s by Don Lima who wanted to bring the Holiday spirit to the community. As the years went by he started adding more to displays along with making them even bigger as the crowds grew. It has been an annual tradition for so many families to visit and since moving back to the Bay Area I told myself I would attend as many traditional events as I possibly can. I never want to miss out on anything in my city or take anything for granted again.

The park is filled with tons of decorated Christmas trees from schools all around the Bay Area and some from local companies in which have donated to the event. You can grab yourself some snacks or the famous hot chocolate everyone raves about to enjoy during your walk. As you visit Christmas in the Park, you will find the park transformed into Santa Claus' village from the North Pole. There are tons of little Elves hard at work, others messing around, a stunning whimsical Nutcracker display and a sweet Gingerbread family. Rudy and I have only ever gone to Christmas in the Park once together back in 2013 and it was something we always wanted to do again. We decided to visit the park a bit earlier this year before all the crowds would begin to show up. Today I'm going to share with you a bunch of photos we took during our visit. I hope you enjoy!

You can check out Christmas in the Park event every year beginning the day after Thanksgiving up until Christmas day. What are some Holiday traditions held in your town?
