2021 Holidays in Highlands

It is that time of the year to take things slow. Slow down, breath in nature's sweet fragrance; enjoy the chirping of the birds and the serene moments with family and friends. May the magical feeling of Christmas surround you this holiday season.

Take a glimpse at Holidays in Highlands through this video. 

November 27th - January 2022


It's the moment children who are young and old have been waiting for all year! The park is dark but there is a hum of excitement as people gather and share cookies and hot chocolate waiting for the program to begin. It's coming together to share traditions of reading the Christmas story, singing carols and wait for it..... Santa arrives and Lights the Park with millions of twinkling lights! There is a sense of magic at the first blink of twinkling Christmas lights and that magic will happen at Kelsey-Hutchinson Founders Park starting 6pm on November 27th. Evenings set amongst the softly lit trees of the park, joy and laughter from the ice skating rink, it's all available for you throughout the holiday season. 


November 27th - December 24th
