Holidays at Jacome



"Instead of just coordinating one event, we're promoting five weeks of entertainment at Jacome Plaza," said Kathleen Eriksen, CEO of the Downtown Tucson Partnership. "We are activating that public space."


More than 38 downtown buildings and 154 trees will be lit up with white lights. Thirty downtown businesses are participating in a window decorating contest and there are weekly activities planned at Jacome Plaza, 101 N. Stone Ave., all month.


"We are just super excited," Eriksen said. "This is the way it should be done."


Here's the skinny.


Photos with Santa


While you're downtown, get the kids' picture taken with Santa. He'll be at Jacome Plaza on weekends starting Dec. 8. Hours are 5 to 8 p.m. Fridays; 4 to 7 p.m. Saturdays and 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sundays.


Outdoor Office


Bring your computer and your project to the plaza and do your work in the new outdoor office space. There's free Wi-Fi and bistro tables and chairs. Hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.


Picnic in the Park


From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday, you can have your lunch and play lawn games and table tennis with your friends. There will also be pop-up events during these hours such as fitness classes, music, painting in the park and more. A schedule will be posted in the park daily.


Friday Food and Flicks


Starting Dec. 8, you can grab a blanket and your family (or make it a date night) and watch movies under the stars. Pre-movie activities include table tennis, lawn games and food trucks. Movies start at sunset.


Health at Jacome


What's better than working out outside? This is a free workout series on the side lawn at Jacome Plaza throughout the month of December. You can try Boot Camp, Hatha and Vinyasa Yoga, Zumba, MMA Sweat, PiYo, Barreless Barre and Mild Salsa for free! Classes are at 12:15 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays and 4:15 p.m. Thursdays.
