10 Holiday Events this Weekend Across the Magic Valley
Events For The Weekend Of December 7th to the 9th 2023
Another week is winding down, and the days of shopping for the holidays are ticking day by day. Weekends and days are limited before the holiday is here, and while many cookies need to be baked, gifts need to be bought and presents need to be wrapped, there still needs to be time for fun and to enjoy the season. Take time away from the baking, the shopping, and wrapping, and get out and enjoy some of the many holiday events happening in the Magic Valley this weekend.
Thursday, December 7 through Saturday, December 9 - Burley Straw Maze
Are you bummed that the straw mazes from fall and Halloween time have gone away? Do not fret, you can still go to the Burley Straw Maze and get lost, but this time with Christmas lights in the maze. Lost in Christmas is now open on weekends, and will be open Thursday through Saturday from 5 PM to 10 PM all three nights. Admission is $8 per person, but there is more than just the maze. There are also wagon rides, the swing ride, Christmas trees, if you still need one, a bull ride, and of course food. For more details on Lost in Christmas, make sure to click the link above.
