A Night on the Town

Night on the Town
Treat your kids to a magical evening surprise with a "night on the town."

Night on the Town

Surprise your children with a “night on the town.” They go to bed as usual, only to find a golden ticket hidden in their beds. They are then whisked to the car, still in their pajamas, where hot chocolate, popcorn, and holiday music await. Once their ticket is punched, they travel throughout the city looking at all the holiday lights.

Apply this surprise to any holiday or time of year by camping in the backyard, grabbing an appetizer or dessert at a diner or tavern, or going to a drive-in movie!
