Christmas on the Comstock

Month of December


Christmas 2016 cowboysWe host our annual Christmas on the Comstock this December, offering a Victorian-style holiday celebration. This small mining town feels like a real-life vintage Christmas book embracing the slower pace of the holiday spirit with lights and shops decorated to the hilt. Festivities for all ages range from unique boutique holiday shopping, specials, a lighted Christmas parade and more. Have some spirited fun on the Grinch Made Me Do It Saloon Crawl, featuring specialty holiday drinks at participating saloons.
