The Holiday Season Shines at Bear Lake's Sparkle in the Park

Thanksgiving-New Year's Day, 2022

Come see thousands upon thousands of Christmas lights set up in nearly 50 holiday displays at Hopkins Park, Bear Lake from Thanksgiving weekend through New Year’s Eve, 5-10pm nightly.

The beautifully lit displays include angels, Christmas trees, Santa and his reindeer, a salute to troops, snowmen, various animals and several Christmas scenes, all arranged outdoors in Bear Lake’s lakeside campground park, just off US 31.
