Experience real winter magic.


Every year, the city of Caldwell transforms into a real-life winter wonderland. 


Over one million holiday lights cover trees, buildings, bridges all over town, painting the city in a mesmerizing glow. Children, families and couples skate under the lights on a huge outdoor skating rink. A singing Christmas tree stands tall on the corner of Indian Creek Plaza.


Visiting Caldwell in the winter is a reminder of just how magical this season can truly be. Join in on the classic holiday fun — it’s ok to feel like a little kid here.
