As part of the Hogle Zoo Light Holiday and New Year’s Celebration Hogle Zoo will be hosting Miss Utah and Miss Teen Utah for a Meet & Greet Autograph Signing Party!
Come enjoy a lighted riverboat ride on the lower Provo River. There are thousands of lights reflecting off the water, holiday scenes along the shore, and Christmas music on the boat. Santa even comes to visit on his canoe. Last year close to 2,000 people enjoyed our Christmas Cruise during the month of December.
We have two professional excursion boats that can accommodate 40 people per ride. Since the boats are uncovered, blankets and warm clothes are strongly encouraged. The ride is a round-trip experience that takes 25 minutes, with departures every 30 minutes, on the hour and half-hour.
Hot chocolate, hotdogs, scones etc.will be available for purchase from Sportz Dogs.

For seven years the Utah Cultural Celebration Center has featured a holiday tree exhibit that overflows from the Celebration Gallery, and throughout the entire facility. Each year the number of groups involved, including arts, cultural, non-profit and commercial, has grown and grown. The purpose of this exhibit is to bring the community together in the celebration of various holiday traditions not only from different countries but from different religious backgrounds and various family or community traditions. The tree is used as a sign of friendship and is used to display the art and artifacts representing the richness of our community traditions.
This year the Trees of Diversity exhibition will have over 25 trees and holiday scenes created by various community and ethnic groups. Included are Amish, Honduran, American Indian, Chilean, Peruvian and other South American countries, Mexico, Japan, Canada, Africa, Hawaii, Scotland and others. The Cultural Center will also be displaying artifacts and other historical items from around the world, along with art pieces, nativities, nutcrackers, gingerbread houses, special holiday “store window” scenes, sculptures and wreaths. Two special displays will highlight holiday traditions in both the Jewish and Muslim communities, and the 100+ Dolls from Around the World collection will once again be on display.
Helping kick off the exhibit is SongFest! a night of musical entertainment for everyone. Scheduled to perform are Christmas Bell Ringers, The Beehive Statesmen, The Salt Lake Men’s Choir and the West Valley Symphony. The magical sights and sounds of the holidays are sure to get the whole family ready to celebrate this special time of year, and to learn about other holiday traditions from around the world.
