The drive through for Christmas In The Park in the History Park (San Jose, CA) took 20 minutes. The line to get into the park was 30 minutes long. Recorded from the dashboard behind a fogged up windshield. No stopping. Bumper to bumper. Lots of flashing lights. This is probably how most people will experience the drive through. I added snarks to the video where appropriate. The “out of storage” error message on the iPhone came before exiting the park.
Christmas In The Park in downtown San Jose has been a holiday tradition for decades. Hundreds of Christmas trees decorated by schoolchildren and community groups. Animated displays of Santa’s elves working hard to make toys. Vendors selling holiday food and drinks. A free event that started on Black Friday after Thanksgiving Day and ends on several days after New Year’s Day.
That was until the coronavirus pandemic this year.
Due to social distancing rules, Christmas In The Park won’t be in downtown San Jose. Christmas In The Park will be a paid drive-through event at the History Park in east San Jose.
