The lights, music, and festivities continue every night through January 1 beginning at 5:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. at John Dam Plaza, 815 George Washington Way in Richland. On Friday and Saturday evenings from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. through December 23, visitors will get an extra special treat with Santa and Mrs. Claus, costumed characters, and food vendors.
Children of all ages are encouraged to write a letter to Santa by December 20. A mailbox to the North Pole is located in the miniature historical village in the center of the park. Remember to include a return address as each each child will receive an extra touch of magic when opening their personalized reply from Santa or one of his elves.
Be sure to join one of the historic talks on the Alphabet homes that were built in support of World War II in the 1940’s and 1950s. The talks will be on Sunday, December 10 and 17 at 1:00 p.m. in the miniature village.
You can drop into the nearby Richland Community Center for a little warmth and enjoy the holiday decorations or sign up for the Holiday Bingo on Saturday, December 16, from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. and enjoy hot cocoa and popcorn while you play.
