A new event will be featured at Saengerfest Park that will light up Downtown Galveston for the holiday season. Downtown Lanterns and Lights will be part of the island’s eight weeks of “Winter Wonder Island” festivities.
Mitchell Historic Properties and the Mitchell Family are donating Saengerfest Park for this magical display of Christmas trees and other artisan made pieces. The Historic Downtown Partnership in conjunction with the Galveston Park Board of Trustees will be hosting an opening night for the grand illumination of Downtown Lanterns and Lights at Saengerfest Park on Saturday, Nov. 25 at 6:00 pm featuring Chinese acrobats for opening night only.
Trey Click, Executive Director of the Historic Downtown Partnership facilitated the set up process at the park for People Generation, the same group responsible for the Magical Winter Lights event in La Marque. McLean’s Metal Works generously donated their time and efforts to install strands of Christmas lights on several of Mitchell Historic Properties buildings to give Downtown Galveston a holiday glow.
Downtown Lanterns and Lights will be on display at Saengerfest Park from Nov. 25 to Jan. 2. The park will also feature an interactive photo frame and a giant snow globe that visitors can enter for family photos. The props will be available from Nov. 25-26 and Dec. 9, 16 and 23.
