Reflect on the True Meaning of Christmas

Step back in time as you view a realistic recreation of the events surrounding the night of our Savior’s birth at our live nativity. Reflect on the true meaning of Christmas as you watch Mary and Joseph with baby Jesus (Thursday through Sunday nights).

Twirl on Our Glice® Rink

If your family likes to visit skating rinks during the Christmas season, you won’t want to miss taking a spin on the Glice® rink, which has a type of synthetic ice that acts just like real ice. It allows you to skate regardless of the temperature. That means you can enjoy skating even if we have a warm night in Northern Kentucky during this event.
