49th Annual Peach Days 10K, 5k & 1 Mile Race

49th Annual Peach Day's 10K Race 9th Annual Peach Day's Mile Race & 4th Annual Peach Days 5K Race 
Join us for one of the oldest races in Utah! The race was started in 1974. The original length of the course was 10 miles which ran on the east, south, west and north sides of town. During the years, the course changed for various reasons, and now the length is approximately 10 kilometers. This is the 6th year for the Mile race.  We added the race in 2013 for a group of younger runners to be involved in the Peach Day Celebration.  It is a 1 Mile Race for 6th through 8th graders.  We added a 5K race during the 45th year.  We had some positive feedback concerning the race and decided to keep it. So for all those who have ever wanted to do the Peach Days Race but felt like you couldn't get through a 10K, there is a 5K, and this race is for you. We will start the races around 8:00 am.

Saturday after Thanksgiving - January 1 | Ogden Municipal GardensChristmas Village illuminates Ogden's downtown area with magnificent displays and holiday lights every year from the Saturday after Thanksgiving through January 1. Spectators find themselves in a dazzling winter wonderland set aglow with Christmas lights and a unique setting of cottages modeled after Santa's village at the North Pole.

 Electric Light Parade and Opening Ceremony Ogden's holiday season begins the Saturday after Thanksgiving with the Electric Light Parade that fills Washington Blvd from 22nd Street to 26th Street. The parade is full of elaborate floats, sensational themes, and fantastic performers. Santa always plans his arrival in Ogden for this day. He comes in on the last float of the parade and when he reaches Municipal Gardens, he flips the magic switch to turn on the lights and illuminate all of Christmas Village. Parade floats are on display along 25th Street through the night, live entertainment is featured in the amphitheater, and the opening ceremony wraps up with a spectacular fireworks show. It's the official kickoff to a month-long celebration of all the magic Christmas brings. For more information about participating in the parade, please call 801-629-8547.
