Koziar’s Christmas Village
Started in 1948, William Koziar would decorate his house for his wife and children. Each year he would add to the display, decorating the barn, trees or lake. By now his neighbors nick-named it the “Christmas House”. At this point, due to overwhelming demand, he would open the property to visitors.
Sixty-six years and several awards later, the Christmas House has grown into the Christmas Village. With over a million lights, hundreds of animatronic characters, multiple glass displays, plus the tried and true “Picture with Santa”; millions come from all over to walk through the village. Some make it a annual tradition.
Make sure to dress warm and have your walking shoes on, there’s a lot of ground to cover, so give yourself enough time and get there early because people will start parking before dusk. If you have little ones, I suggest a stroller.
Koziars has been named the best light display in the world. It is absolutely worth the trip! Make it your new tradition.
