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 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.
