Light up those dark Seattle winter days with a ride on the festive Holiday Carousel. This DSA attraction will be spinning in Westlake Park for its 32nd year. Give it a whirl for a suggested donation of $4. Each ride benefits DSA’s programming and management of Occidental Square and Westlake Park. We bring activities and events to these urban parks year-round as part of a 5-year agreement with the city of Seattle. More information is available here.
After you hop off the carousel, make sure to check out the Holiday Market just a few steps away. Local artisans are offering handcrafted, locally made wares to downtown shoppers as part of a collaboration between DSA and Urban Craft Uprising.
