Local, winter events celebrate residents who participate in a variety of holiday traditions. From bright lights to firework shows to Christmas markets to themed running events, park and recreation agencies host family fun this time of year. More than four in five U.S. adults want their community to hold cultural events and celebrations during the holidays that everyone can enjoy.

Millennials and parents show their strongest support with two-thirds of that population group noting it is "extremely" or "very important" that their community holds cultural events and celebrations during the holiday season for all people to enjoy.
