Capitol Hill Community Post | Holiday Magic at Volunteer Park this Thursday

Volunteer Park Trust invites you to our fifth annual Holiday in the Park this Thursday, December 7 from 6:00-8:00pm. This fun, free event features five different choral ensembles, a kids’ activity booth, and free hot cocoa, cookies and eggnog! Once again over 600 luminarias will be lining the walkways transforming Volunteer Park into a magical wonderland.

This year’s schedule of fantastic choral groups will keep you cheery and inspired the whole evening:

6:00pm – Holy Names Vocal Ensemble
6:20pm – Sing Noel
6:50pm – Lakeside Acafellas
7:10pm – Voices of Inspiration
7:30pm – The Beaconettes

We will be giving out free cookies thanks to Whole Foods, and Darigold will be handing out free samples of hot cocoa and eggnog. At this year’s activity booth, toddlers and kids will be able to make their own glow-in-the-dark headwear.

Adding to the festivities, the Volunteer Park Conservatory will be open late and offering free admission. You can warm up in the tropical heat and watch the Holiday Express train make its way through the towns and hills of the wintery miniature display.

Please join us!

More information on Holiday in the Park can be found on the Volunteer Park Trust website as well as on Facebook.

Please note: the Volunteer Park main concourse will be closed to cars. You can still drop guests off at both entrances to the park, and the lower loop road will be open for parking.

  1. Thank you sponsors, singers, and organizers. Weather is looking good! There is a clean & safe public restroom immediately east of the conservatory open until @9PM. The 2008 Parks and Green Spaces Levy we passed earmarks funds for its regular maintenance. The city building housing the Asian art museum was closed for renovation. Bandstand restrooms were restored to service by VPT volunteers but now closing for winter. The water tower built of Index Granite and Renton clinker brick is open until @9PM for colorful skyline views of “Amazonia.” This year we mark the twentieth anniversary of the educational exhibition on parks history and Olmsted design. It’s only 107 steps so why don’t you come on up and see it sometime.
