Welcome to the 2020 Lighter Side of Christmas
This year’s theme: “The SoundZ of the Season”.
In lieu of the parade, we will be producing a virtual holiday concert featuring the Woodland Park Wind Symphony with sponsor logos and holiday promotions. This virtual holiday promotion will run throughout the holiday season beginning Saturday, November 28 with Shop Small Business Saturday. Please support your local business community this the holiday season!
Woodland Park Wind Symphony (WPWS)
Now in its 26th year, the 60 Piece Woodland Park Wind Symphony has become a popular musical cornerstone of Woodland Park. A rarity for a small community, the WPWS and supporting ensembles perform throughout year for many local events, civic organizations and facilities including the Old Fashioned 4th of July Celebration, Woodland Music Series, Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremonies, and The Holiday Home Tour. Besides free formal concerts, the WPWS is highly recognized for its Spring Thematic Concerts such as the “Jurassic Travel through Sight and Sound” concert which featured a display of a 40 Foot T-Rex provided by Dinosaur Brokers. The WPWS is an “all-volunteer” non-profit organization funded by donations and grants.
Woodland Park Main Street (WPMS)
Woodland Park Main Street is part of a nationwide movement striving to revitalize historic buildings, foster community among businesses, and create a place where people feel connected. WPMS does not build, buy or finance new development. They are contributors. Through their status as a Designated Main Street organization, they have access to grant monies for historic preservation and downtown revitalization. Their goal is to work in collaboration with key partners and organizations in planning for the future of downtown Woodland Park. Their volunteers help make it all possible! If you’re located in the Main Street District, one of their representatives will be contacting you for your sponsorship this year.
