With more than 800,000 lights hung along Indian Creek in downtown Caldwell, the Winter Wonderland Festival, held each year on the Friday evening before Thanksgiving Day, is the place to be to see all those lights turned on! The Festival runs from 6pm to 9pm, with games and activities for kids, wonderful food vendors (think Fair food--it's amazing), and craft/services vendors tucked in all over the downtown area.
This is a great family-friendly event, and you don't even have to worry about parking! With a shuttle stop at the O'Connor Field House west-side parking lot, you can park your car in the Event Center parking lot and catch the shuttle to downtown. You will be dropped off at the 9th and Arthur intersection near the new Luxe Reel Theater, which is the start of the light trail. This will also be the pick-up point when you are ready to head back to the car. The flyer for this year's festival is below, and the Indian Creek Plaza website has all the details (see link below the flyer).
