Kick off the holiday season with the Rice Park Tree Lighting in St. Paul!
Although we’ve seen only a few snowflakes, the holidays are just around the corner. I was really hoping winter wasn’t quite here and the holidays were months away, I love fall!
Yes indeed, winter and holidays arrive sooner than later. It also means, mark the calendars for upcoming holiday and winter events.
This Friday, November 19th, is the Rice Park Tree Lighting event. The lights typically stay lit until mid March although I don’t see a final date on the website this year.
Even if you can’t make it to the lighting event, keep in mind the lights for the season not just an evening, so check them out on another evening! We like to make it extra fun by finding some local food and a little shopping to support some of the local businesses.
Additional information about the event:
Everyone and anyone—all ages are welcome.
