Mayor’s Holiday Lighting 2017 – Make it your Parker Tradition!
O’Brien Park in downtown Parker is the place to be on Friday, November 24, 2017 at 5:30 pm for the Mayor’s Holiday Lighting – a fun-filled kick-off to the Christmas season! This year the beautiful voices of the Parker Chorale will sing Silent Night along with the town of Parker as we countdown to the Town Tree and Grand Park Lighting. O’Brien Park and all of Downtown Parker will feel like a winter wonderland full of sights, sounds, and tastes of the holiday for all of the community to enjoy!
Start off your winter wonderland adventures by stopping in the Town tent and picking up your program full of events to visit and your scavenger hunt key. Then travel around taking in all the sights, like holiday themed ice sculptures and local school choirs singing carols, all while collecting stamps on your scavenger hunt. A 50 inch TV from Xfinity is the prize to one lucky scavenger hunter, so be sure to get your stamps!
Enjoy tasty treats from local food vendors, complimentary Holiday Carriage Rides, (based on availability and tickets required – signup at Holiday Carriage Rides) holiday caroling from our local high schools and the Parker Chorale and a Nutcracker performance by Colorado School of Dance.
The Mayor’s Tree Lighting has been a favorite with our families over the years and we know you’ll enjoy it as well.
