If you are still looking for the perfect gift, this is a great opportunity. The Boise Christmas Show at Expo Idaho features thousands of unique gifts and over 300 vendors. The Christmas Show runs from December 3 through 5 with different hours each day.

It does cost $5 for adult admission and children 12 and under are free. Santa and Mrs. Claus will also be in attendance!

2021 Downtown Boise Holiday Tree

The holiday tree in downtown Boise will be shining from November 26 through December in the Grove Plaza. Organizers are encouraging people to make a night of it downtown by pulling a gift tag that supports the Women’s and Children’s Alliance. Shop at small businesses and check out the Winter Window Walk.

Indian Creek Plaza Winter Wonderland Festival

Every year, the city of Caldwell decorates Indian Creek with over one million lights. Opening weekend for the Winter Wonderland Festival is November 19-21, but the lights are up through January 9.

There will be no official lighting ceremony this year, but the experience will still be amazing for your family! There will be ice skating, food trucks, vendors and entertainment every weekend. The lights turn on at dusk every night. The best parking is along the Railroad from 5th Ave. to 12th Ave.

Scentsy Commons Christmas Lights

Scentsy in Meridian is getting in the holiday spirit by wrapping 450 trees on its campus with Christmas lights. There will be over 43 miles of lights, including the light tunnel that is perfect for taking pictures in.

Back this year by popular demand is the 75-foot tall Christmas Tree. People are encouraged to dress warm and wear good shoes for walking around. The lights will be on every night from sunset to sunrise until January 16, 2022.
