A seasonal tradition for residents of Teton Valley, the day-long schedule of events is a community calendar highlight. This year’s attractions included all ages performances, contests, prizes, craft-making, light parade, fireworks and, of course, social time with Santa Clause.

A daytime workshop, held at Valley of the Tetons Library and hosted by Santa, offered materials for ornament making and a separate edible art studio where children (big and small) created 3-dimensional designs atop a sugar cookie canvas. Additional activities were carriage rides, Turkey Toss, theater, live music and Light Parade 2019, a main event led by the big man in red and closed with fireworks over main street.

City of Victor reps describe the annual Holiday Festival as a truly magical event and Santa Clause said there was no place he would have rather spent the Saturday.
