At least it was chilly for this holiday party. At City Park, the adults get to act like kids again during Jingle Bells and Beer. Fueled by local craft beer, delicious food like gumbo and roasted brussel sprouts (a la Whole Foods), the be-belled revelers take over the amusement park and racously ride all the rides, play games like ring the bottle, and even take the train around the park to get a sneak peek of Celebration in the Oaks. This particular party had the awesome addition of the band Cardinal Sons that kept everyone dancing in between beer runs. I found that too many people were holed up in the carousel area, probably not fans of the cold, but the bravest among us waited in line to get a chance on the Ladybug.
