About Christmas in the Country

Come out to this enchanting event, featuring thousands of lights and hundreds of candle lanterns in a natural park setting. Stroll through the grounds and enjoy the various activities in each building.

Decorate your own gingerbread cookie, take a horse-drawn wagon ride, visit Santa in his very own igloo, make your own Christmas bell, visit the Pioneer Village, enjoy a cup of hot apple cider, take a short trip to the North Pole, visit the Elf Maze, and enjoy the new interactive story-boards, and so much more!

When you get hungry, wander on over to the Christmas Cafe and enjoy a hearty bowl of chili. While there, write your letter to Santa and post it for mailing. Afterwards, take a ride on the Christmas train!

Please dress for the weather as much of this event is outdoors.
