This time of year, especially around the holidays, it can be stressful and even hectic as you prepare for Santa’s big day. Why not combine the joyful spirit of the holiday season with a short break to Bishop’s big backyard. Your family will come home with a renewed energy, lifelong memories, and most of all, lots of smiles on your faces.

Christmas Holiday Festival… Ahead Of Time

Start off December right by visiting on the 1st weekend of December for our Christmas Holiday Festival. On Saturday, December 3rd, the festivities kick off with a Santa Fun Run at 3:45 pm followed by the Main Street Parade at 4:30 pm. We then finish it off with the Christmas Tree lighting at 5:30 pm.

All About The Polar Express

Take a step back in time to the late 19th century on Saturday, December 10th at Laws Railroad Museum. Sip on hot cocoa and ride in a horse-drawn carriage down caroling lane. Get a golden ticket and light up your children’s faces with joy and wonder. This special ticket provides admission to the Railroad Express with Santa’s elves and a merry band of Christmas carolers. It’s a ride into the past and back to the present. And truly is as magical as it sounds.

The “North Pole” Of Owens Valley

From November 25th through December 18th, the Cardinal Village Resort up in the mountains is where Christmas happens and Santa visits. Go ice skating on Cardinal Pond. Pick up a fresh-cut Noble pine Christmas tree. And even have some snow fun by going sledding, cross-country skiing, or snowshoeing.

Don’t let the stress of the holiday season ruin your mood. Instead, take a break, come visit, and enjoy Bishop’s Christmas Holiday events.
