Mayor’s Holiday Lighting presented by Xfinity and Swingle Lawn, Tree and Landscape Care

New Format....Same Traditions!
Friday, November 25, 2016
5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

O’Brien Park comes alive for the holidays! Join the Town of Parker for an enchanted evening in O’Brien Park. Gather around the Town Tree and join the Mayor and the Parker Chorale in a Sing-a-long to Silent Night to kick off the event.

Following Silent Night, Mayor and Town Council will count down to the Town Tree and Grand Park Lighting. You will love the elegant look and feel as our Town Tree lights up and the park sparkles in white elegance!

Once the park is lit up, it’s time for the fun to begin! Stroll around O’Brien Park and take in the sights of the fun holiday ice sculpture displays following a path to each of the five displays.

Don’t forget to stop by the Town tent before you begin your walk to pick up your program and scavenger hunt key. If you obtain enough stamps on your scavenger hunt passport, you may even win a 50-inch TV from Xfinity!

Along the way you are bound to run into some magical elves, Frosty the Snowman, a toy soldier, Ebenezer Scrooge and perhaps the Grinch all whom will have some sort of story to tell or an activity to show you. Santa and Mrs. Claus are also in town for this festive evening and you may even spot the “Elf in a Tree”!

Make your first scavenger hunt visit with the Parker Police Department at its annual Cram the Cruiser. This booth is a joint effort by the Police Department and Parker Task Force and benefits the Parker Task Force Backpack program which focuses on providing kids in need with food for the weekend. Each Friday, qualifying children pick up a backpack with food items to provide nourishment so that they are able to focus on their studies, instead of their hunger. Bring a food donation to the Police booth (single serving food items such as, packaged snacks, Mac and Cheese and breakfast bars) and receive a stamp on your scavenger hunt passport.

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. This evening is sure to be filled with wonderful holiday memories.
