Christmas in the Park is open from 9 am-12am every day until then. Each year, there’s over 500 trees decorated by local schools, organizations and others. All for display in Plaza de César Chávez Park. Lincolns’ Cheer squad, LPC, Convertibles, and Xóchil were invited to have their very own tree. You can go visit their trees at #559, #113, #114.
