With the snow falling and the temperatures dropping, it is definitely beginning to look a lot like Christmas. If you visit downtown Castle Rock, you’ll see that this town is ready for the season. Stop by Festival Park to see it transformed into the mini North Pole, complete with Elf dressing room and North Pole Welcome Center. The Season of The Star 2016 is underway with events happening daily. It offers the perfect break to spend time with your family amidst the season’s hustle.
If you’ve ever wanted to dress like an Elf or take a selfie with Santa or if you need to drop off your letter to Santa, you have to visit The Elf House Experience.
