Ho Ho Hometown Holidays is coming to town again this year on December 2! Stroll the city streets and get transported to a winter wonderland filled with Santa and Mrs. Claus, reindeer, carolers and more.

Stores will be open for holiday shopping - be sure to bring your list! Keep the holiday spirit going all through the night by mingling with costumed characters, reading Santa your wishlist and listening to carolers with a cup of hot cocoa in hand.

Turning the volume up on one of our time’s most influential (and controversial) innovators, Nikola Tesla Drops the Beat is a theatrical experience unlike anything you’ve ever seen. A show that can only be described as “HAMILTON meets TESLA”, this epic battle of Nikola Tesla vs. Thomas Edison is set to the rhythm of a brand-new beat, in a modern and mesmerizing musical that will leave you speechless… and electrified.
