JCPRD has put together an assortment of holiday program offerings for everyone in the family from toddlers to 50 Plus.

Whether you’d like to sign your kids up for a Candy Cane Hunt, create a ceramic ornament, attend a 50 Plus holiday gathering, visit a special holiday exhibit at the Johnson County Museum featuring Santa’s chair from the former Metcalf South Mall,  hear a choir sing at a historic limestone school, attend a free concert by the New Horizons Band, attend a live performance of the Theatre in the Park’s indoor presentation of “Seussical the Musical,” hear holiday-related stories, provide gifts for the animals at Ernie Miller Nature Center, and more, we’ve got plenty of opportunities for you to enjoy and share some good cheer. 

Keep in mind most of the programs below require advance registration and note that some programs have already filled and may be taking waiting lists.
