I've been to this (in fact I went last year) and it's one of the largest Christmas displays I've ever seen. It takes up the entire 2-acre Plaza de Cesar Chavez Park with over 60 displays that include animated characters, community made Christmas trees, and holiday decorations. They even have "snow" that shoots out over guests from time to time.
In addition to the displays, visitors can enjoy:
- Meet with Santa
- Live entertainment
- Amusement rides and games for kids and adults
- Concessions with fun foods including international favorites
- Gifts and toys for sale
- DONATION BOXES! This is important, please donate.
HOURS: 9:00AM to Midnight
DATES: Daily through Jan 1st, 2011
That's the best part, the whole thing is free but it costs a lot of money to keep it going. They event organizers ask that you donate just $1 for each person who visits. With close to 500,000 visitors every year, just $1 per person would fund the entire program for next year.
With so many restaurants in the downtown area within walking distance (we went to Spaghetti Factory last year), it's easy to plan an eveing in downtown San Jose.
