We're kicking off Winterfest 2017 by turning on the holiday lights at Bayliss Park at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, November 16. Join us for the moment the park transforms into wonderland, then stay awhile and enjoy several family-friendly activities. Take your picture with Santa! This year, Santa's Workshop will be set up on the south side of the park along with hot chocolate and cookies. Head over to Union Pacific Museum for face painting, balloon animals, and real-life reindeer! Bring your friends and family! You don't want to miss this Council Bluffs tradition!
