Last week, Holidazzle kicked off in Loring Park. This week, St. Paul’s winter party begins, offering a variety of winter-themed fun. This Friday will feature a tree-lighting ceremony at 6 p.m. There will be a singalong before plugging in the giant tree on the front lawn, followed by a fireworks show and a double-header screening of Elf and The Polar Express. Meanwhile, on the East Plaza, you’ll find the annual European Christmas Market. Shop for handmade items, enjoy traditional eats like sausages, mulled wine, and sweets, and take in live music and dancing. Santa, his reindeer, and Krampus will also be stopping by Fridays through Sundays each week. The Canadian Pacific (CP) Holiday Train is visiting on December 10, and the much-loved Holiday Bake Sale is set for December 14. Find the complete schedule of events at uniondepot.org/holiday.
