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 six displays.
Don't forget to stop by any of the sponsor or Town booths to pick up your Scavenger hunt passport. Make your first stop a visit with the Parker Police Department at its annual Cram the Cruiser event. Bring a food donation to the Police booth (individual size servings) and receive a stamp on your scavenger hunt passport. Visit 10 out of the 12 places on the passport and turn in to the Xfinity tent by 6:45 p.m. and be entered into a drawing for a 50 inch big screen TV. Must be present to win so make sure you stick around until the very end of the event!
Along the way you are bound to run into some holiday characters all whom will have some sort of story to tell or an activity to show you. Santa and Mrs. Claus will also be in town for this festive evening and you may even spot the “Elf in a Tree”! While you stroll through the park you can enjoy tasty food from Comforts of Home, Colorado Pizza Company, the Parker Sunrise Lions Club, Archies Dog House and Buck Baloo Kettle Corn.
The O'Brien Park Gazebo will also come to life with the sounds of the holidays as the Parker Chorale and our local high school choirs sing some of our favorite holiday carols. The Colorado School of Dance performers will also be at the event and will showcase one of their dances on stage as well.
This evening is sure to be filled with wonderful holiday memories.
