For those that enjoy walking around and trying food, the German inspired, Christkindlmarkt SLC, will be a treat. Free to the public, the annual Christmas market in Salt Lake City’s Foothill District will be from 4-7 December.
The Utah Santa Run offers exercise as a holiday activity, a great way to burn those calories from desserts and food. This event is in three places; Ogden, Gardner Village and Provo. By registering, a Santa Suit is included, and the run will have milk and cookie aid stations.
In Provo, a new adventure is offered by cruising along in a boat down the Provo River. Along the route Christmas music is played with light decoration around the river. Natalie Ockey, a resident in Utah, went on the ride with her family and thought it was a unique experience. She said, “It was a different and a fun way to see the lights and Santa.”
