December is fast approaching. If you are looking for some fun and exciting events to get into the holiday spirit, San Jose community parks are the places to be. A variety of holiday inspired events and activities will be on hand at different parks across the city. Whatever you do to celebrate the season, everyone is sure to find a way to connect with community through peace and goodwill, and have some fun while doing so. Listed below are some of the exciting events coming up at our parks.
The first weekend of the month is full of different events. Bring the kids to San Jose’s History Park on Saturday, December 3rd for the annual Children’s Holiday Festival. This is a wonderful ‘hands-on’ history event where you can enjoy the carols of yester-year and the kids can enjoy fun activities with them in mind.
Also on the third is a celebration for the dogs. Head over to Caesar Chavez Park for the annual free Dog Day at Christmas in the Park, a popular San Jose tradition. Dogs can get pictures with Santa while you enjoy a winter wonderland with live music, incredible lights and animated holiday scenes. Christmas in the Park also includes a breakfast with Santa on Saturday, December 10th and the Santa Run Silicon Valley on Sunday, December 18th, to name a few other events to enjoy during the month-long celebration of the holiday spirit. This downtown San Jose holiday extravaganza has something for everyone.
