MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — It’s Thursday, and that means it’s time to start planning some weekend fun! With Thanksgiving now just a week away, a lot of holiday events are kicking off this weekend. Here are some highlights.

Macy’s Santaland
Get into the holiday spirit this at the opening of Macy’s Santaland. As you make your way to meet Santa Claus himself, you’ll see the animated story of his elves at the North Pole as they prepare for Christmas. Santaland opens at the Macy’s in Minneapolis Saturday at 10 a.m. and continues through December 24th.

Lights In The Park
This weekend, crews will be hanging holiday lights at Lake Phalen in St. Paul for the annual holiday lights in the park show. Starting Tuesday, folks can take the tour to see St. Paul’s Phalen Park transformed into a fantasy of lights and color. You’ll see more than 50 holiday sculptures and animated displays. The cost is $10 per vehicle, but if you go on a Sunday through Thursday, you’ll pay $8 per car.

Festival of Trees
You could also kick off your holiday season Friday with the HealthEast Festival of Trees at St. Paul’s RiverCentre. It’s a holiday luncheon and fashion show framed by designer-decorated trees and holiday wreaths. Be ready to bid on your favorite or come for inspiration. Natalie Kane will be at the event and would love to see you there.
