December is a busy month for tons of families! It’s also a big month for Boise events and activities! If you’re looking for some festive fun for the whole family, date nights, or just something to get you in the holiday spirit, check out these winter weather activities around the Treasure Valley!
Winter Garden aGlow
Easily one of the most spectacular displays of lights in the state, the historical Botanical Gardens puts on Winter Garden aGlow each year, turning the gardens into the most magical place in town. With a dazzling display of over 380,000 sparkling lights artfully displayed throughout the holiday season all the way till January 1st, this is one Boise tradition you won’t want to miss!
Must See Theater
Boise Little Theater is putting on the Christmas favorite: A Christmas Story! Follow the winter exploits of young Ralphie, who spends most of his time dodging a bully and dreaming of his ideal Christmas gift, a Red Ryder air rifle. A show that the whole family will enjoy, spend the evening at Idaho’s longest running community theater!
Stage Coach Theatre has two excellent shows for you this year! The regularly scheduled production this season is The Great American Trailer Park Christmas Musical, a country-rock and blues musical about agoraphobia, 80’s nostalgia, disco and more! If you’re a night owl, check out the “after hours” showing of their second production, The UnXmas Story. This is not your average Nativity story. With a little more cursing and a little less biblical accuracy, this is definitely an adult night out kind of show!
The Nampa Civic Center presents Traditions of Christmas, a Radio City Music Hall-style show which includes beautifully choreographed kick-line tap numbers, Santa’s workshop, a heartfelt military tribute performance and a grand Nativity conclusion. Featuring a cast of 70 people, spectacular sets, live animals, and over 400 costumes. Don’t miss this amazing production!
If you’re looking for winter activities for every age, look no further than The Village at Meridian! Fountain Square, in the middle of The Village, has daily Ice Skating available for everyone, with affordable ice skate rentals for all ages!
Don’t forget to meet the Big Guy himself while you’re there! The Village has visits with Santa every day, from 12pm-7pm Monday-Saturday, and 12pm-6pm on Sundays. Bundle up and get in line to get your picture taken with Santa in his warm Christmas Cottage!
Don’t worry, Santa loves your furry friends too! Mondays are pet photo night at The Village! Come and get great photos of Santa with your four-legged pals!
