Santa’s Ozark Mountain Village
Nov. 27th & 28th and Dec. 5th & 19th (5:30 pm – 8:30 pm)
Santa’s Ozark Mountain Village is a mid-1800’s themed outdoor Christmas light display and walkthrough experience, sponsored by the Grove Area Chamber of Commerce and Har-Ber Village Museum.
Our story begins in 1864 when America needed Christmas more than ever before.
Overwhelmed and overworked with no time to play, Santa and his elves worked night and day.
His solution came by word of mouth, Santa heard about the Ozarks way down to the South.
Their skill and craftsmanship couldn’t be beat, but could Santa’s elves handle the heat?
With a touch of his nose and some magical power, it would snow on the foothills upon every hour.
Santa loaded up his sleigh and was soon on his way, for he knew what to do save Christmas Day!
The sweet smell of dogwood, such a pleasant aroma, welcomed Mr. Claus to Oklahoma.
The holiday season was beginning to lurk, so Santa pushed up his sleeves and went straight to work,
with grit, determination, and a pinch of hospitality, his dream of a second workshop became a reality.
Here’s your invitation into the past, 156 years of making memories that last!
