The Grand America Hotel has announced its fourth annual Holiday Window Stroll, just in time to kick off the holiday season. The event features 13 unique, whimsical displays in each of the hotel’s retail window. The stroll will start on Black Friday, Nov. 29 at 8 a.m.

This year’s theme for the Holiday Window Stroll is “Santa’s Workshop.” Guests can take a closer look into the magical world of Santa’s helpers as they prepare for the holiday season. “We’re thrilled to invite the local community, as well as guests from all over, to celebrate the magic of the holidays at The Grand,” says Bruce T. Fery, chief executive officer for The Grand America Hotel. “We hope this year’s Holiday Window Stroll, combined with the many holiday events at the hotel, captures the joy of the holiday season for all to enjoy.”

Each window display is meticulously hand-crafted, and includes an animated component that truly captures the imagination. Stroll attendees will receive a “Ticket to the North Pole” to guide their explorations, as well as a special seasonal chocolate at the end of the stroll.

Guests visiting the hotel for the unveiling festivities will be welcomed with eye-catching holiday decor and a host of events, including a book signing and reading of children’s book “Maurice on Holiday.” The first 10 guests to complete the stroll on the launch day will receive a breakfast buffet for two and access to a meet and greet with author Stephen Wunderli and a signed copy of his book.

The Holiday Window Stroll hours will be Sunday–Thursday, 4–9 p.m. and Friday–Saturday 10 a.m.–9 p.m.

The window stroll will conclude on Dec. 31.

Mary photobombs Lisa Barlow at the premiere party for Real Housewives of Salt Lake. Below is a snippet from Mary's last editor's letter:⁠

"It’s all a little crazy.⁠
Sometime in 2020, the world stopped making sense for a lot of us. Between one of the ugliest election cycles the U.S. has ever been through and the most mysterious disease most of us have ever experienced, normal was canceled. We can’t get together with friends, hug our loved ones, be in the room with them when they die. But somehow we have to go on, right? Somehow we have to continue to work and love and laugh. This issue of Salt Lake magazine holds a lot of frivolity, the main one being an extremely silly TV show, The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City. There I am in a pink fur coat in a car with our cover housewife, Lisa Barlow and her boys."⁠

Pick up our Jan/Feb issue at your local grocer and read the full letter. ❤️

Mary's last-minute holiday gift ideas from last year are still as true and relevant today...⁠

"The planet we live with and the creatures on it need all kinds of things. Polar bears need presents, tree frogs in the Amazon need gifts, our Utah canyons and our national parks need help."⁠

There was never a time there wasn’t Mary Malouf. Until now. Today, Mary died when a rogue wave swept her out to sea off the coast of Northern California. Only she – perhaps the world’s foremost lover of Bronte, BBC mysteries and, of course, Moby Dick – would appreciate such poetic drama.

“I know not all that may be coming, but be it what it will, I'll go to it laughing.” — Mary Brown Malouf. Ooops. Herman Mellville.
