Holiday Kick Off Event at The Whitaker

November 15, 2018 @ 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Join us in AMP lobby (off of Market Street entrance) as we unveil our gingerbread house display and festive holiday decorations, featuring beautifully decorated trees and miniature train display. We’ll be crowning the winners of our gingerbread house contest and Santa himself will be making an appearance to hear holiday wish lists from the littles.

Get a first glance at our  holiday exhibit(ion) in fun – Whitaker Wonderland (located inside Harsco Science Center) featuring a sock skate rink and snowball pit. We’re offering special admission to Harsco Science Center for just $10 (ages 3+) on this night so families can check out what’s new and enjoy some yummy treats courtesy of Hershey’s Ice Cream.

A “pop up holiday bar” (cash only) will be available in AMP lobby and will feature a special holiday cocktail  along with call brands and bottled beer. Grab a drink and check out the decorations or purchase a ticket to Theatre Harrisburg’s “Newsies” in Sunoco Performance Theater and enjoy a few laughs!

We’ll also be offering a special deal on Whitaker Center Family Memberships – stop by the Box Office for details and to purchase and check off some gifts from your list!
