Downtown Lincoln Association creates the “North Pole” in Lincoln

Tower square at 13th and P streets

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Even though it’s not feeling much like December, a brand new Christmastime destination opened up in downtown Lincoln.  It’s called “the North Pole”

It’s located at the tower square in Lincoln at 13th and P streets.  Every evening from 4:30 to 10 through Christmas Eve the music and lights turn on and create a festive atmosphere for everyone.

Todd Ogden, the president and CEO of the Downtown Lincoln Association explained why they wanted to create this, “We wanted to create one destination in downtown to attract people to, that they can enjoy to give them memories for many years to come and also highlight everything downtown has to offer while they’re here.”

Todd also said the association wanted to put this up so people remember to shop local and visit the small businesses in town.

While at “the North Pole”, kids can write Santa letters, take pictures behind festive cutouts, and decorate trees with community ornaments.  People can put family members on the “naughty or nice list” as well as take a walk down candy cane lane.

On some of the days, Santa Claus himself is even planning to visit.  The coffee shop near by will also be giving out hot chocolate on occasion!
