The holiday season is upon us, and I’m very excited to announce that Ogden’s Christmas Village will once again light up our downtown with hundreds of thousands of lights and nearly one hundred handmade cottages. I hope that you and your family get out and enjoy the lights, Christmas cabins, and memories that Ogden’s Christmas Village provides. It is genuinely one of our gems and a Utah holiday tradition. We’re very excited that we’ll be kicking off the season in style with the Electric Holiday Light Parade and annual fireworks display.
While you are downtown, please take the time to visit our local merchants and spend locally. Ogden is a treasure trove of locally owned businesses and offers a wide variety of experiences and options. Try out a new restaurant and make lasting memories with your family and friends.
As you may have heard, Doug Stephens made the decision to not run for re-election for the District 3 seat. I want to thank him for his 16 years of dedicated service to our city and its residents. He listened to his constituents and did right by his supporters for nearly two decades, and that is commendable. We are all surrounded by kind and generous members in our community, and Doug embodies this to the fullest extent. Thank you for your service, Doug.
Again, we live in a wonderful place, surrounded by amazing people. Whether it’s skiing with your family, hitting the trail with your dog, curling up with your favorite book, or enjoying the company of your loved ones, I hope you’ll find the time to enjoy all that is good and right in our lives during this holiday season.
With sincere gratitude,
Ogden City Mayor
