Are you looking to start some new family traditions this holiday season? We have complied a list of fun Christmas activities for the whole family to enjoy! We hope this will help you to get into the holiday spirit this season!
Ogden Christmas Village
Christmas village in downtown Ogden is always a family favorite. The lights and Christmas scenes fill the windows of small houses at the Ogden Municipal Gardens. This is a must see for the whole family!
Terrace Plaza Playhouse
The Terrace Plaza Playhouse is putting on their annual Scrooge: A Christmas Carol. This is a must see play to get you reminiscing on a favorite Christmas story. The play will be going on all season!
Midway Ice Castles
If you haven't taken your kids to see the magnificent ice castles in Midway, this year is the time to do it! This is truly unreal and magical for parents and children to enjoy. There are ice slides and colorful lights that come on in the evening. It is cold and make sure to wear your snow boots. You can get your tickets in advance or at the gate when you arrive. This is something my family loves to do every year.
Heber Valley Railroad
Real life Polar Express?! Utah has so many fun activities at Christmastime and this should be at the very top of your list!
Luminaria at Thanksgiving Point
Walk through the Gardens at Thanksgiving Point and enjoy the Light of the World display. I have heard amazing things about this event but have yet to experience it myself!
The Forgotten Carols
My family has been going to this every year without fail since I was a child. Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without starting the season off going to this musical. This will get you into the Christmas spirit like nothing else and will remind you what the season is all about. There are wonderful songs and a powerful story of the Christmas story.
Christmas in Color
Watch over a million twinkling lights put to music at the must see event! It might be a little bit of a drive but it is worth it! You can see it in South Jordan and Provo.
Layton City Lights in the Park and Hayrides
There is a free lights display at the Layton Commons Park and you can even take a hayride near by! Click in the link for more information about the hayrides!
This is a classic ballet put on by Ballet West at the Capitol Theater in Salt Lake City.
Festival of Trees
