Festival of Trees and Lights Free Family Fun After Thanksgiving
The title of the latest Sioux Falls Alive event really says it all, there will be beautiful trees and sparkling lights. But that's not all. They'll have make-and-take craft activities that kids will just love, like constructing paper lanterns, pop-up trees, and Christmas bulb suncatchers.
You can also check out Santa's workshop and write a letter to him while you're there. Washington Pavilion mascot Radley Rex and one of Santa's elves will be meeting and greeting all the guests and taking pictures with them.
The great thing is all the events that are going on in the First Floor Lobby at the Pavilion are free! But if you and the kids find yourself craving a snack, there will delicious holiday treats and beverages you can purchase, including those awesome Hot Cocoa Bombs.
Upstairs in the second-floor lobby, there is shopping to be found with a number of vendors with all kinds of products for you and your home including art, beauty and wellness items, and more.
