Its name might have Thanksgiving in it, but after the turkey feast, it’s all about the holiday season.

“Black Friday” is the official start to the holiday season and Thanksgiving Point is transforming into a winter wonderland. From Nov. 25 to Dec. 31, Thanksgiving Point will be offering holly jolly activities for the whole family.

The holiday isn’t complete without those twinkling lights, but don’t fret about staying warm. Electric Park’s lights display will be drive-through friendly. In addition to the traditional Santa’s Workshop and Candy Cane Lane, visitors can ooh and aah at this year’s Museum of Ancient Life and Thanksgiving Point Gardens and Farm Country.

Rather than setting out cookies and milk, go have Breakfast with Santa! Saturdays Dec. 3, 10 and 17 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., Santa, his elves and Mrs. Claus will all be there. Don’t miss out on dance contests, holiday games, cookie decorating and your very own picture with Santa.

Treat your ears to some holiday classics brought to life by the Utah Symphony. The concert will be held in the Show Barn Dec. 5 at 7 p.m.

If you miss the symphony your ears are still in luck. Get lost in the a cappella tunes of Utah’s award winning group Voice Male. They’ll be performing in the Show Barn Dec. 13 and 14 at 7:30 p.m. The six-man group twists holiday classics you’ll be snapping along to.

You sing their names each Christmas, and now you can pet and feed these celebrities. Santa’s reindeer Comet and Cupid will be at Thanksgiving Point’s Water Tower Plaza Nov. 25 to Dec. 23.

Don’t miss out on these month-long festivities. For more information on any of the Holiday Central events and to make reservations or purchase tickets online, visit or call 801-768-4900.
