Do you long for an old fashioned Christmas with friends and family.....the kind of Christmas celebration you remember as a child...... with community spirit, carriage rides, Christmas Parades and of course Santa's arrival to welcome in the season? 

Bring the whole family and join us for Christmas in the Valley beginning every Thanksgiving Weekend, when the joy of the season begins. See the Annual Lighting of the Courthouse Square, the Annual Christmas Parade, entertainment at local venues, the Annual Main Street Open House with carriage rides, and of course caroling, caroling and shopping, shopping, shopping everywhere to remind us all of how things used to be.  There's simply no better time to be in the Arcadia Valley Region.

Take a carriage ride to see all of the Christmas decorations throughout the Valley!

Vendors, artisans and crafters who have prepared for months are filled with excitement as the shopping season begins!  Children flock to be the first to see Santa arrive as the parade winds its way through the Valley.  Bring your little ones to share in the excitement!

All of our quaint and charming shops are decorated from floor to ceiling for this grand annual event.  Go from shop to shop all weekend searching for that special gift.  The annual open house of participating gift, antique and collectible shops will enable you to take care of those special people on your shopping list early!  With many gift and specialty shops tucked close together, what could be better than a girls getaway weekend of shopping, sharing and fun before the demands of the season take hold?

Stay in a magical Bed and Breakfast, Motel or Lodge ~ or spend the holiday weekend at one of our Resorts, Cottages or Cabins.  The winter season is beautiful in the Arcadia Valley and Black River Recreation Area.  Bond together with family and friends as you take an old-fashioned carriage ride to see the beautiful lights and decorations spread throughout our region.  Take the chill off with a mug of hot chocolate! 

We hope to see you beginning Thanksgiving Weekend as we all celebrate the love and joy of the Christmas season.  Be certain to make your lodging reservations early, or just come for a day of shopping during the Christmas season.  Christmas is a very special time indeed in the Arcadia Valley Region and Black River Recreation Area.
