An outdoor winter-themed family park, Sparkle! can include activities that entertain the younger kids like the Marionette Theatre, Rudolph's Reindeer Barn, and Santa's Workshop with Animated Elves. Sparkle! Christmas at the Anatole is stacked with candy for the senses including an outdoor skating rink, pictures with Santa, face painting and play areas.As abundant as presents under the tree, are the events held out in the cool air. Varying by day, puppy costume contests and Santa photos with an incredible, sky-high Christmas tree, as well as Caroling "gossips," and a hand-crafted Nativity scene line the grassy park.
One of the best features of Sparkle! that outshines other family events is that almost everything is included in the ticket price. Purchasing Santa pictures is optional, but very affordable at only $10 per photo.
Tickets for the occasion are $9 for adults and $7 for children ages 7 to 17 and can be purchased online as well as on location at the gorgeous Hilton Anatole.
