Christmas in the Park is beautiful and a lot of people contribute to putting together all of the trees Santa comes sometimes too.

A Note from Emily’s Mom: We have been to Christmas in the Park at night before and it was fun to see the tree lighting and all of the lights, rides, and people. Since we were in San Jose for a field trip at The Tech Museum across the street, we decided to swing by for a quick look at the trees during the day (when it is less crowded).


There is a story on it.

Tons of trees each one is special.

Our favorites

Looking and lots of Girl Scout trees

So many troop numbers

Have you been on a local mini-adventure lately? Where did you go?

From the website: Christmas in the Park is an annual holiday tradition that takes place in the heart of Downtown San José at the Plaza de Cesar Chavez. For over 30 years, this whimsical event has brought people from all over the Bay Area together during the holidays. Each year, the two-acre park is transformed into a holiday fantasy with over 60 musical and animated exhibits, glittering lights and the 60-foot Community Giving Tree. Some of the original displays housed in one of the largest exhibits, the Lima Train, include a melting snowman, caroling mice, and elf woodcrafters. Guests enter a winter wonderland of lights, songs, and local entertainment while strolling through an enchanted forest of trees decorated by San José schools, community groups, and businesses.
