The annual holiday kick-off celebration will be on Saturday, November 21st from 10am to 2pm. This is free, family-friendly event. Children can get photos with Santa and the 501st Legion Storm Troopers, test their skills in the Loveland Laser Tag shooting challenge, enjoy a lead-around horse ride from Sylvan Dale or a train wagon ride, watch ice sculpting, show off their creativity at the arts and crafts station, get a glitter tattoo, and much more. Parents can browse the Visitors Center for that perfect holiday gift. Chick-fil-A will provide sandwiches for the first 400 people. The first 500 people will receive a goody bag, and there will be chances to enter and win prizes from the Budweiser Events Center, Colorado Eagles, Loveland Laser Tag, Candlelight Dinner Theater, and Grimm Brothers. Bring a non-perishable food item to receive a Loveland ornament, for the first 250 people.
