Capitol Hill Community Post | Holiday in the Park to Bring Festive Cheer to Volunteer Park

VPT_HolidayInThePark2016_CHCC_Main_500x500Holiday time is here and Volunteer Park Trust is once again presenting its fun, festive and free event Holiday in the Park on Thursday, December 8th from 6:00PM to 8:00PM.

Over 600 candlelit luminarias will line the pathways of Volunteer Park transforming the promenade into a magical wonderland of lights. The live choral performance this year include the inspiring voices of The Total Experience Gospel Choir, the hilarious and Figgy Pudding award-winning Beaconettes, the all-inclusive Columbia City Community Chorus, and Sing Noel.

Volunteer Park Trust will be giving out free cocoa and cookies thanks to donations from Tulley’s Coffee and Whole Foods. And the children’s activity booth returns offering kids and toddlers the chance to float a Make-A-Wish boat.

If you need to take the chill off of the December evening, the Volunteer Park Conservatory will be open late, offering its tropical warmth to everyone.

For those interested in the Volunteer Park Amphitheater Project, consultants ORA Architects will be on hand to get your feedback on their Schematic Design proposals. Look for them on the promenade by the Amphitheater Project sign.
