Bergen Place will be transformed into a holiday wonderland this weekend, with the Ballard Holiday Fest taking over the park this Saturday, Dec.1 from 3 to 6pm.
The festival will have all the markings of the holiday season, with photos with Santa, hot chocolate and cider, live music and more. Hosted by Visit Ballard, they’ll also announce the winners of the “Tomte Trail adventure”, which is the end of a month-long hunt for a small Tomte figurine, hidden in Ballard’s shops. The organizers created a downloadable “Tomte passport” in which participants collected stamps or signatures each time they found him.
All Tomte passport holders will receive a prize at the Holiday Fest, and those who have 10 or more stamps will be entered to win the grand prize: a Family Plus Nordic Museum Membership with reciprocal benefits at over 850 museums in North America.
