Come celebrate the holiday season in The Village at Northstar California during Noel Nights. They will be held on the first three Thursdays of December from 5 – 8 p.m. 

The Village will feature a 35-foot tree, which was decorated by local school children. The ice skating rink will be open with free skate rentals until 9 p.m. with a canned food donation. Enjoy warming up at the fire pits, eating s’mores, listening to carolers and much more. There will be complimentary one horse Sleigh Rides in The Village from 5 – 8 p.m. and complimentary face painting inside Starbucks from 5 – 7 p.m. 

Santa will be in the village from 6 – 8 p.m., so children will have a chance to tell him what’s on their Christmas lists and have a picture taken. Epic Mix Photographers will be taking the photos, so bring your season pass and the photos will be automatically uploaded to your Epic Mix Account.
