The countdown to Christmas has officially begun. Thankfully there are many Holiday Happenings to enjoy with your family right here in Highlands Ranch. Saturday, December 10th from 11am - 2pm is the Metro District's Holiday Celebration! Usually this event is held at the Mansion, but because of the construction it will take place at Civic Green Park. A lot of fun family activities will be offered including: local choirs performing, balloon animals, a stilt walking toy solider, crafts, and more. Your child will also have the opportunity to meet Santa! If it's too cold for you outside, warm up in the library with story time or a puppet show! This is a free event, however the Knights of Columbus will be there accepting donations of coats, blankets, and sweaters for the Denver Rescue Mission. Parking is only permitted in the RTD lot for this event, not the library. For more information go to the Metro District website.
