Christmas in the Park is a Winter event that takes place each year in downtown San Jose, California, roughly from the last week of November to January 1st. During this time, more than a hundred of Christmas trees decorated by local schools and other groups are displayed in Plaza de César Chávez Park. There is also a large number of Christmas-related musical and animated exhibits, a 60-foot high Community Giving Tree, and many souvenir and treats shops.
The event is attended by more than 450,000 visitors each year. It is free to the public, although donations to help offset its costs are suggested.
Next to the park there are about half a dozen rides for children, which in some years have included a Ferris Wheel, a pirate ship, etc.
