The Village at Northstar is transforming into a winter holiday wonderland. The tree is up, the ice skating rink is rocking, the shops are full of winter gifts and the restaurants are cooking up delicious meals every day.
This week is the first of four magical Friday nights in the Northstar Village. Noel Nights has been a Northstar tradition for years. The Village will be lively with sleigh bells ringing as the one horse open sleigh takes families and lovebirds for a ride around the Village. The illuminated ice rink is filled with people of all ages and abilities enjoying a favorite winter ice skating pastime while listening to music. Surrounding the ice rink are open fire pits with s’mores available for roasting and cabana bars open for a hot cocoa, hot toddies or a "Snuggler". Carolers will be singing holiday tunes as they weave through the excitement. Be on the lookout for the elves who roam the village in anticipation of Mr. Claus's grand appearance. Be sure to look in all the nooks and crannies of the village for face painting, gingerbread house decorating and ornament making. The best part of the night is when Santa arrives and kids of all ages rush to sit on his lap to tell him their Christmas wish.
This Friday is a special night, not only because it is the first day of December and the countdown to Christmas but also the Northstar Tree Lighting Ceremony. Gather around at 7pm for a group countdown to light the beautiful 26 foot Christmas tree at the foot of the skating rink.
