Winter Wonderland 2020

It will take more than a global pandemic to stop Papillion from celebrating the holidays! Our 2020 Winter Wonderland is still on, but it will look different. We have worked with the health department to come up with a plan to help us celebrate safely. It is easy to focus on what we can’t do right now, but let’s focus on what we can do. We can absolutely drive around town and look at all the amazing Christmas lights and decorations and continue to support our local businesses. So, let us plan to do just that! We invite you to join us on Saturday, November 28 from 5:30 - 8 pm for a drive through experience of all the holiday cheer you can handle!! Keep your eye out for our daily updates on what we have in store for the 28th and some additional fun experiences that will be offered through Christmas Day.

Don’t forget that November 28 is also Small Business Saturday and a great time to start or finish up your holiday shopping while supporting our local small businesses. Stay tuned and get ready to celebrate the holidays with the Papillion Community Foundation 2020 style!
