WOW! This place is amazing. We had no idea that this light display would become one of our favorite adventures. Ogden City takes an entire block and covers it with lights. You can stroll through the area and look inside lots of little village houses–some that represent a historical site in Ogden or a company that has been around a long time. Our boys loved peeking in all the windows.
When we visited, they also had a small train running which the boys had to ride. I believe this train is no longer around, but we are going to go check and see. They also had a large Nativity and a concert going on. We didn’t stop for the concert because we spent over an hour wandering through this village. There were so many things to see.
Santa is at the Ogden Christmas Village from 6-9 pm on weekdays, and 5-9 pm on Saturdays (no Santa on Sunday). It is free to visit with Santa!
Even without the fun village, the lights that cover this block are beautiful. My grandma came with us and said she usually just drives by to see the lights and doesn’t take the time to walk. We were glad she walked with us today. We loved walking through the village and looking in all of the little homes decorated for Christmas. This is definitely something to add to your must do list for Christmas. Best of all, it was free!
Directions: Ogden’s Christmas Village is located at 2549 S Washington Blvd. The Ogden City website has a link to help you get directions. Here are some simple ones. From 1-15 take Exit #340 (24th St/UT-53). Turn right off the exit. This road is UT-53/Pennsylvania Avenue but becomes 24th Street. Follow up to Washington Blvd. Hang a right and in a block you will see these amazing lights!
