2 Days till Christmas in Utah - Tuacahn - Christmas In The Canyon | Live Nativity


Since I am spending Christmas with my son in St George this will bring the Christmas spirt to anyone with the Live Nativity. What a beautiful way to spend the season.

Tuacahn's Christmas In The Canyon is presented every Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings from the day after Thanksgiving to December 23rd. Entrance to Christmas In The Canyon is free to the public. It's Tuacahn's way of saying "Thank you" to the community for its support and to remind us all of the true meaning of Christmas. A Live Nativity is presented each night in the Amphitheatre at 7:00 and 8:00 PM. Cost to get into the Live Nativity is $2.00 per ticket or $10.00 per family.

In addition to enjoying the Live Nativity, visitors can also see the lights and listen to wonderful Holiday music on the Tuacahn Plaza, or sit by an open fire and sip hot chocolate from Tuacahn's Concession Stand. Visitors will find a wonderful selection of Christmas items and Holiday gifts at the Tuacahn Gift Gallery. Near the entrance to the Gift Gallery parents can bring their children to see Santa Claus from 6:30 - 9:00 PM. There's something for everyone at Tuacahn's Christmas Festival of Lights.
Live Nativity
The Live Nativity includes real live camels, and beautiful costumes. Volunteers will staff all of the nativity efforts. "We've had great success working with religious leaders from all faiths in the area, every night, a new set of volunteers will be making this nativity come to life." said Rita Ostler.

Those interested in volunteering for the 2011 Live Nativity should contact the Tuacahn Administrative Offices at 435-652-3200 or by e-mail at

"Whether you can work on stage or back stage, everybody is welcome," said Ostler, the volunteer coordinator for the Live Nativity. "All contributions are appreciated."

Volunteers can participate for one night or many nights, depending on their circumstances. Roles to be filled include Mary and Joseph, the Three Wise Men, townspeople, angels, and shepherds.

3 Days til Christmas in Utah - Enjoy Utah!: Willard Bay Christmas Lights 2011

Willard Bay Christmas Lights 2011

The Willard Bay Christmas lights are always spectacular, but even more so this year!

For $9 a car, you get admission to see the most googled Christmas lights display in Utah! Included this year with that $9 admission is a horse drawn wagon ride to see the lights! Instead of just seeing the lights from your car, bundle the family up in a blanket and enjoy the lights the old fashioned way.

Light displays are now through New Years, from 6pm to 10pm. Please note that if the attendance is down that night, the wagon ride may close earlier than 10pm.

Read an article from the Salt Lake Tribune about the people behind the lights and how they got started.

How To Get There:

Fantasy at the Bay is located at Willard Bay State Park. Visitors should take I-15 and use exit #357 to enter the display from the Cottonwood Campground. For more information regarding the display, please call Willard Bay State Park at 435-734-9494 or call the display headquarters at 435-237-9506.

Thanks to my dad, Mark at Gines Auto Service, for this information! This is one of his favorite Christmas lights display to see every year!
