Idaho is chalk full of Holiday fun around the state. If flying back to visit family is out of the question this year like it is for many of us, finding festive joy closer to home is in order. Even though some events, festivals and parades are on hold or changed this year. There is still plenty to do, especially if you don't mind a little car trip with your loved ones.

First and foremost the Winter Carnival in McCall IS happening (as of right now) this year but with a few changes. Find out all of the ins and outs and details here. 

I had no idea and was so proud to find out that Coeur D'Alene has the tallest living Christmas tree in America. BOOM! Christmas spirit right there. The massive grand fir tree stands 162 feet tall, and each year it is decorated for the holidays with 40,000 lights and topped with a 10-foot star. Worth the drive to check it out if you have never seen it in person. Coeur D'Alene also has one of the grandest light shows in the state check out the deets here. 

With a town like Santa, how can you not feel a little festive being from Idaho. Sant, Idaho even made headlines back in 2005. In exchange for $20,000 the town officially changed their name - for 1 year- to SecretSanta.com, it was all part of a marketing effort by the gift exchange site.

The Dubstep House in Meridian. Enjoy a Christmas light show spectacular like no other. Created in 2005 and continuing to add attention, even making national headlines in 2015 on ABC. This fun festive and heavy bass show is done by the Cadger family and we all love and apricate the hard work it takes every year!

Boise Christmas & Idaho Holiday Events - Check out dates and times for the Christmas tree lighting ceremony and the Festival of Trees along with assorted holiday happenings elsewhere in November and December.

Winter Garden aGlow - Enjoy hot refreshments, cookies and roaring bonfires as you take in the annual light spectacular at the Boise Botanical Garden.

St. Alphonsus Festival of Trees - 37 years strong, this annual event has major changes this year, the Saint Alphonsus Foundation Board made the tough decision to modify the 2020 Festival of Trees from an in-person event to a virtual one. It will take place over two weeks period from November 19 to November 30.

However you choose to spend them, Happy Holidays from all of us at WOW Country!!!!
