As far as what I hear, everything will be open at the park. I did not think they would open the whole thing up.

Also the cookies they had out today were awesome! Me being a fat guy I head a few here and there well I worked. In fact I think I am fatter then the guy they have playing Santa!

I did get the video done. If you want to [url=http://www.coastercrew.com/intheloop.php?action=play&fileid=181]check out the show.

This sounds cool, and I'm glad to hear they will plan to run the coasters if the weather cooperates. We've had some mild winters recently.

I also like that they're announcing it now. The park will be able to promote it all year and by next Christmas it will be more publicized. I don't remember what happened with Kings Islands attempt to do a Christmas event, but I know they only tried it for a short time and it wasn't successful. I think an event like this will need to be run for at least a few consecutive seasons so that it becomes more of a tradition that builds over time with the local community. Hopefully it will catch on.

Have I mentioned how awesome donkeys are?

I'm a little confused...

This isn't going to be happening this year, correct? Next year is the first year?

^Yes, that's correct--Christmas Town at BGE starts in November 2009.

I'm really excited for this! This will make BGE once again stand out in the region. Dollywood and Hershey are the only parks anywhere close with one of these events.

I'm really happy that a Christmas Event seems to be the growing trend. Just like how the Halloween events seem to have spread throughout most parks over the last 5 years I hope more parks start doing events like this.

Seems that so many parks in Europe and Japan have been doing seasonal events like this for years that give guests something else to look forward to and keep locals returning to the park year round it's good to see more and more US parks doing this too.

I mean, if Beech Bend Park can be doing a Christmas event, IMO, just about EVERY seasonal park should be!

Yep and Beech Bend is doing it again this year. In fact the event opens tonight, and this year BB is even open for a New Year's Eve countdown!

I think Euroburg's setting really lends itself to Christmas (the architecture, the woods). They should be able to put on a first-class Christmas event. Christmastime is a big deal at Colonial Williamsburg, as well. I wonder if CW and the park will try some sort of tie-in with the historic area's Grand Illumination. They already sell joint passes at the park and CW Visitors Center for BGE, CW, Jamestown, and Yorktown.
