I visited this place two weeks ago. There was nothing to see or to do. In a sunny Sunday, there were very few people around. The most of shops totally closed and dark inside. Please don't waste your good time visiting this place.

Weather cool/cold, but enjoy the holiday lights. This display always makes the local news. Plenty of eateries around the plaza so you can come and make a night of it. Kids are welcome. Fun for the whole family.
