KETV Drive-Through Family Festival

Enjoy a Free and Festive Drive-Through Experience!
WHEN: Sunday, December 6, 2020 | 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.
WHERE: Omaha Police Mounted Patrol Barn – 615 Leavenworth Street

To keep the community safe, the Family Festival will be held as a festive drive-through experience at the Omaha Police Mounted Patrol Barn!

Traditionally, the Family Festival takes place at a variety of Omaha’s leading downtown attractions with a trolley service to connect sites. This year, out of an abundance of caution, the event has been reinvented as a drive-through.

The event will take place at the Omaha Police Mounted Patrol Barn and guests should approach the Patrol Barn from Leavenworth Street. Though different from previous years, hands-on activities will still be part of the event. The drive-through experience will include picking up craft kits to do as a family, holiday characters and Santa, Police Officers on their horses, and holiday entertainment – all in the warmth and safety of your vehicle. The first 500 vehicles will receive a complimentary Paddington Bear book, courtesy of Omaha Public Library.

Once you arrive home, you can visit this site at your leisure for demo videos to put the craft kits together, a virtual tour of The Durham Museum, and virtual storytimes with Santa at the Omaha Children’s Museum and with librarians at the Omaha Public Library!

Help feed the community! Volunteers will be on hand to collect food donations for the Shine the Light on Hunger campaign, so bring nonperishable food with you if you wish to contribute. All contributions are greatly appreciated! CLICK HERE to learn more about Shine the Light on Hunger.

Many of the Organizations that participated in 2019 will still participate in 2020, the difference is that the event will only take place at the Omaha Police Mounted Patrol Barn as a drive-through experience (all organizations below will be participating in the event at the Omaha Police Mounted Patrol Barn).
