New displays at Christmasland

Christmasland in Humboldt is now open nightly for the holiday season. This popular holiday attraction sponsored by the Humboldt/Dakota City Noon Kiwanis Club, has been visited by more than 100,000 people since its opening in 1982. Visitors from most of the 50 U.S. states and some foreign countries have seen the displays. Last year there were more than 6,000 visitors to Kiwanis Christmasland.
For 2012, there are several new scenes that were purchased featuring large snowmen engaged in various activities. The new displays were made possible by a generous grant from the Humboldt County Community Foundation and local Noon Kiwanis fundraisers.
Kiwanis members have also added new insulation and shelving and repainted some scenes for the coming year.
The display is open through Dec. 23, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Christmasland will also be open Saturday-Sunday afternoons, Dec. 1-2, Dec. 8-9, Dec. 15-16 and Dec. 22-23 from 2:30-4:30 p.m. Christmasland will also be open in the afternoons in the days leading up to Christmas, Dec. 20-24 from 2:30-4:30 p.m. Admission is free, free will donations are accepted.
