Holiday Events in Mammoth Lakes

Mammoth holiday events have had much success in the past few years, and the 2011 celebrations should be no exception. Last year, activities such as art festivals, live musical performances, and ski tours took place around the town.

You can expect similar activities this year, along with a spectacular tree lighting ceremony, pictures with Santa, holiday carolers, and New Year’s celebrations. You will also be able to participate in other special events such as a snowman building contest, story time with Santa, s’mores making, fireworks displays, and ice sculptor demonstrations, which have all been held in the past.

Special dining offers will be available as well. Dine at outstanding restaurants in the area like the Mountainside Grill or the Lakefront, which each host Christmas day specials.

Mammoth Mountain

The Mammoth Mountain area is the host of many Mammoth holiday events. Enjoy breakfast with Santa on select dates and a delicious Christmas feast held on Christmas day at the Mountainside Grill, which offers exquisite California cuisine and a wide selection of wines.

Participate in the annual event, Night of Lights, on December 17, a free experience that offers entertainment ranging from a firework display to a torchlight parade and even a complimentary gondola ride from The Village to the event. Mammoth Mountain also hosts several New Year’s Eve parties, so make sure you make your reservations as soon as possible in order to attend one of these exclusive events.

The Village at Mammoth

The Village at Mammoth, a center for shopping, dining, and entertainment, also hosts many of these holiday events. A New Year’s Eve concert and firework display is scheduled for the 31st. Other activities include shopping, tasty dining options, and a spa. Merchandise at The Village ranges from sports stores to trendy clothing stores.

Snowboard and ski rentals are available as well, and there are several nightclubs and bars in The Village. Dining is available for any mood you’re in, whether you want to eat at a fancy restaurant, try a juicy barbecue sandwich, or grab a quick bite to eat at a pizzeria.

The Town of Mammoth Lakes

Aside from all the special events and celebrations scheduled in the month of December, you will find other businesses and yearlong activities that you can also enjoy on your vacation to Mammoth Lakes. Go to Minaret Cinemas to for a relaxing afternoon watching the latest film. Visit Mammoth Lakes Art Center for scheduled performances, or spend the day on the slopes. Attending all of these celebrations and other activities won’t leave you disappointed, but only leave you with memories when you’re through with your vacation to Mammoth Lakes.
