Christmas Cartoons

Enjoy Christmas and holiday cartoons during the light tour.  The animated feature is shown continuously on a large screen at the end of the Tour of Lights on Oakes Street, from December 1st through 31st.  Park your car and bring your blankets!  You are sure to make memories as you sit with your family and friends under the stars, sipping hot chocolate and watching classic cartoons. This year we will feature a favorite holiday favorite  "PREP & LANDING."  

'On Christmas Eve, a high-tech team of elves from an elite unit known as 'Prep & Landing' ensures that homes around the world are prepared for Santa's visit. But when two hilarious little elves face unexpected challenges and are pushed to their limits, it'll take a great big effort to save the season.'
