Will there be food at the event?
Yes. A few local vendors and participating Central Place businesses will have holiday snacks and beverages for sale during the event. The Paramount Theater will be selling concessions, beverages including beer, and will provide free popcorn throughout the evening.
Where can I park?
The Market Street Garage will offer free parking after 5pm and the metered spaces surrounding the downtown mall that are currently part of the City's parking meter pilot will be available at no cost for the entire day. If you park in the Market Street Garage before 5PM and leave after 5PM you will NOT need to pay for parking.
How early should I arrive?
The earlier the better if you like to move around and want to enjoy some of the festivities without a crowd. It will get more and more crowded the closer we get to tree lighting time.
Should I bring a stroller?
Early on you won't have issues with a stroller, but as we get closer to tree lighting time you'll find that navigating a stroller through the crowd could be difficult. Be prepared to park the stroller and hold baby or have a Bjorn handy.
Is there a bag policy at the Paramount Theater?
Yes. The Paramount Theater has a clear bag policy and will have security staff on hand to assist with compliance.
What if it rains?
The show will go on! If weather is a factor we will move the entire production into the Paramount Theater.
