Many of our guests and community members have come to rely on Shawnee and our seasonal traditions year after year to create their own holiday memories. 2020 is no exception! We’ve found ways to keep everyone safe while still enjoying these special seasonal activities and events. We have even added some new seasonal activities and events that may just stick around and become Shawnee Traditions themselves.
