Alaska's best Christmas celebration is Colony Christmas in Palmer! The entire town comes alive for the weekend, with events taking place throughout the area. The parade of lights and fireworks on Saturday are always a hit. Meet Santa, shop local craft fairs and get into the festive spirit by shopping locally.
