Featuring a 100-foot-tall lighted Christmas tree, Enchant Christms presents a holiday event you can get lost in.

Find all of the pieces for a chance to win a prize at the end of your visit. The event will also feature ice skating, snacks, activities for kids and cocktails for adults. Tickets range from $20-$30.
