Holiday Time In The Cities
by SIMshows Ticketing

There are so many great things to come across for the holidays in the Twin Cities, and with the holidays coming up fast, we decided to list off a few of the popular festivities going on here in the metro area.


Holidazzle in Loring Park is a premier holiday celebration bringing you family friendly fun for the season. This is both FREE and FUN to the public. Holidazzle Movie Nights are still happening this week with a Friday night showing of “A Charlie Brown Christmas” Dec. 23rd at 7pm.

And don’t forget to bring your family or loved ones to see the amazing Holidazzle Fireworks display at 6:30pm on December 23rd! And if that wasn’t enough, enjoy the outdoor skating at the Wells Fargo Minneapolis WinterSkate (bring your own skates or borrow a complimentary pair located in the warming house).

And to top it all off, don’t forget to go Meet Santa! On December 23 from 12pm to 9pm, he’ll be visiting throughout the Holidazzle run and will be taking photos, hearing wish lists, and spreading his holiday cheer while you enjoy all the interactive illuminated art installations! Loring Park’s Holidazzle is the place to be, filled with stories and memories for everyone.
