Take a look at the top reasons for Christmas spent here in Moab. 

Electric Light Parade 2023 

The holiday season brings a variety of exciting events to enjoy with the family. Here in Moab, we continue this tradition with our annual Electric Light Parade each year. This free event sees decorated floats parade down Downtown Moab for an enjoyable experience. The event takes place on Saturday December 2nd making it perfect for those who will visit early for the holiday season. Head over to Downtown Moab before the parade starts at 6:00 p.m. to enjoy some hot chocolate and time with friends and family. Decorated floats will be covered in holiday lights to “light” up the parade. Santa Claus will also be popping in to check on all the children and see what they want for Christmas. The event will take place from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on December 2nd. 

Visit the Natural Parks 

Moab is known as the home for the Canyonlands National Park and Arches National Park. You can also find the Dead Horse Point State Park in the region too. While the summer in Moab is typically hot it cools off significantly here in the winter. Explore the parks around Christmas to find the beautiful red rock mountains dusted in a light layer of snow that makes for a truly memorable landscape. The trails will still be open for hiking and mountain biking so you can explore at your leisure. The winter season is also a slower travel season in Moab so you will not find as many crowds here in the area. Winter in Moab is a beautiful experience that must be seen to be believed.
