Visitor Tips and News About Christmas Village
The gift shops have very good prices on decorations. They can only be accessed with paid admission.[Brent Thompson, 01/12/2011]
The Christmas Village will take about an hour and a half to tour (at your own pace) once you park and get into the place -- longer if you plan to shop at the many places to buy food and ornaments, etc. The kids and adults loved following the path through the millions of lights. It was quite crowded, and there were tour buses from out of town![Susan, 12/29/2009]
This is the most fantastic Christmas Display I've ever seen! It is a farm decorated with what looks like millions of Christmas lights. Lights are on the houses, barns, sheds, display buildings, and all around the walkways are Christmas themes. What is so spectacular is when you approach CV, you are driving on a dark road and then you get to the top of the hill and you think you are in a fairyland. There is a large lake and all the lights reflect in it which adds to the amazing beauty. There is a great indoor train display and every imaginable Christmas decoration. What I liked best about it is that you walk through the attraction. You can go into many of the beautifully decorated buildings and music is playing everywhere. This is an awesome tourist attraction for people of all ages. It is only open at night during Nov and Dec.[Noel Nielson, 05/31/2005]
The Greatest Christmas Display in the U.S.A.! Started in 1948 on a farm. Now a SUPER SPECTACULAR DISPLAY of lights, with buildings, rest room facilities. indoor train display, food, beverages and lots more. Driving thru the darkened countryside and coming over that last hill on the unlit country road is like DRIVING INTO A FAIRYLAND especially with a large lake in front of the village. You would almost think you're in HEAVEN![Greg Walton, 11/09/2002]
I remember going to Christmas Village as a kid, and for me, it was a tradition. This place is huge. It was started back in the '40s or '50s by a local farmer and just kept growing. It seems this guy has never taken anything down -- he just keeps adding to it. Especially cute are all the handpainted plywood cartoon characters he has staked out all over the place.[Jody Roberts, 10/27/2002]
