Christmas Eve Torchlight Parade & Gift Giving
December 24 @ 6:00 am - 8:00 pm
Before Santa makes his trip around the world, he leads a fiery torchlight parade down the slopes at Whitefish Mountain Resort and hands out a few presents to good girls and boys.
Gather at the bottom of Ed’s Run just outside of Ed and Mully’s to watch the Torchlight Parade descend from the top of Chair 2. This Montana Christmas Tradition makes for great photos and is a special event for the whole family. Santa will give gifts out in Ed and Mully’s following the parade.
6 pm: Torchlight Parade
6:30 – 8 pm – Santa’s Gift Giveaway
