Christmas in the Park | She & Him Adventures

Welcome to another magical She & Him Adventures! For over 30 years, Plaza de Cesar Chavez has been transformed into Christmas in the Park. Christmas in the Park is a Winter event that takes place each year in downtown San Jose, CA. It runs roughly from the last week of November through Christmas. During this time, the park has over 60 musical and animated exhibits, Christmas lights, and more than five hundred Christmas trees are decorated by local schools and other groups. Christmas in the Park is truly a holiday fantasy for every to enjoy. So, join me today as we celebrate the holidays at Christmas in the Park.
One of the first displays Ricky and I always visit at Christmas in the Park is the Reindeer Ranch. This beautiful rustic red village is the Reindeer Barn and it features all of Santa's reindeers. This display is so stunning, I love it! I was very happy I was able to grab a really nice picture in front of this beautiful display. 

The next display that really caught our attention was the Kringle Pet Supply and Feed that features eight children holding their favorite pets.

While strolling down Christmas in the Park, we ran into this adorable Candy Cane House. It reminded me of the well-known fairy tale of Hansel and Gretel, the tale of a young brother and sister who were kidnapped by a cannibalistic witch living in a forest, in a house constructed of cake, confectionery, candy, and many more treats than are imaginable. 

Gingerbread spice and everything nice! The Gingerbread Village at Christmas in the Park is the oldest display, dating back to 1980.  It's one of my favorite displays and I always make sure to grab a photograph. 

Guests who visit Christmas in the park can take a stroll through an enchanted forest of trees decorated by local schools and other groups. One of my favorite things to do while strolling down is looking at all of the decorations. I especially love when trees have themes, this year one of my favorite was this spooky tree decorated by the Boy Scouts and this Peppermint tree decorated by Casino M8trix
This Coco tree is ¡Ay mi amor! ¡Ay mi amor!
Next up, we walked over to the Christmas in the Park famous 60-foot Community Giving Tree. This tree is giant! 

One of Ricky's favorite displays were these Lego Christmas displays, he was looking at them forever!

As you can tell Ricky was really enjoying this year's Christmas in the Park.
At Christmas in the Park you can also find some very iconic displays like Natasha's Attic Hat & Dress Shop, The Swiss Clock Maker, Grandmas House/Post Office and the Candy Store. Christmas in the Park has so many beautiful displays and this Candy Store is definitely one of them.  

One of the last things we made sure to do at Christmas in the Park was visit Mistletoe Row. This year the Mistletoe Row featured a photo spot where you can take a selfie under a giant mistletoe. Ricky and I made sure to grab a picture together of this cute photo opportunity. 
Christmas in the Park has become a yearly tradition for Ricky and I. It's such a fun day and/or night event and Christmas in the Park really gets you in the Christmas mood. I highly recommend visiting if you can, it’s free to visit. So invited your friends and families and visit Christmas in the Park before it ends! And don't forget to purchase one of their famous Snowman Hot Chocolate! Until next time and Happy Holidays!
