It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in the Boise community! We saw the annual tree lighting at the capital, on the Boise State campus and at The Village at Meridian but it doesn’t stop there! Though it’s getting colder outside this Christmas spirit is definitely warming our hearts! We wanted to continue to encourage all of our Totally Boise readers to enjoy the Boise community during this joyous time. Here are a few events and activities to do with your friends and family this holiday season!

One of our most favorite activities during the holiday season is driving around with a hot cocoa in hand, Christmas music on the radio, and enjoying all the lights throughout the Boise community. Boise Trolley Tours wants to be apart of that experience with you! Nightly Christmas light tours are now available from December 9th until December 27th. You can buy your tickets online by visiting their website.
Traditions of Christmas
Where: Nampa Civic Center
Traditions of Christmas is a Radio City Music Hall style show that is loved by all ages. During this show the performers will bring you a long as they enter into different times and heritages. There will be a special USO performance where our military is honored as well as kickline tap dancers, Santa’s workshop, and a Nativity story. This show truly does have it all and reminds the Boise community what the true meaning of Christmas is. So, grab your friends and family to enjoy this heartfelt performance together.
