Kick-Off this Holiday Season with Family & Friends at the Winter Wonderland Holiday Lighting at Usher Park!Gather in Usher Park as we await Santa, Mrs. Claus and their Holiday Friends arrival at 4:20pm from the North Pole. While waiting, enjoy listening to the Holiday Dickens Carolers, and enjoy sipping something warm from our Hot Chocolate & Cookie Stations. Children, bring your letters to Santa and place them inside the 5ft “Letters to Santa Mailbox”, sponsored by the Itasca Bank & Trust, Co. Once our North Pole Guests have arrived, you will be dazzled by the Inner Prestige Dancers’ Holiday Performance. At 5:00pm, be prepared to be amazed by the thousands of twinkling lights and displays which will light up Usher Park. Once Usher Park is lit, stroll through the pathways to explore our Itasca Winter Wonderland, through January 15! Admission is free and no tickets are required, but Santa’s elves would love if you brought a new and unwrapped toy for “Toys For Tots Foundation”, and a non-perishable good to support the Itasca Food Pantry.
