Embark on a festive adventure at The Village at Anne Ellen Christmas Tree Farm, where the holiday spirit twinkles in every corner. Visiting this enchanting destination feels like stepping into a holiday film—minus the snow! Join us as we unwrap the magic of The Village, adorned with over 30,000 sparkling lights and captivating holiday attractions.
A Glittering Tapestry of Lights:
As soon as November begins, The Village transforms into a dazzling spectacle with over 30,000 Christmas lights. These lights, meticulously placed on trees and decorations, cast a warm glow on the walking paths. Many lights even mimic falling snowflakes, creating a mesmerizing winter ambiance. Every corner presents a picturesque moment, making it a haven for capturing beautiful holiday memories.
Charming Villages and Enchanting Stops:
The Village boasts charming structures, including a life-sized gingerbread house, Santa's house, and an inviting igloo. However, our favorite stop was the Train Room—a miniature village mirroring the cozy towns seen in Hallmark movies. Each detail, from shops to people and snow, was thoughtfully crafted. The North Pole Postal Company provided an interactive experience, allowing kids and adults to write letters to Santa and witness the magical journey on a large screen. The Christmas Shooting Range added a splash of color to the festivities as kids aimed and watched their "bullets" transform the targets into vibrant hues.
The Holiday Experience for Everyone:
The Village goes beyond visual delights, offering interactive activities and educational experiences. The Maple Shack takes visitors through the process of making delicious syrup, providing insight into the tapping of trees and sap boiling. Lined up in picturesque rows, trees of different varieties await selection for home decoration.
