12 Holiday Traditions The holidays in downtown SLC are a magical time. From the light-wrapped trees to the thousands of shoppers, the streets of downtown are vibrant and chock-full of cheer. Salt Lakers take the holiday season very seriously, and years of planning intricate and extravagant performances have led to some great traditions. Here are some of our favorites: Gateway, Temple Square, City Creek Center, Gallivan Plaza, Eccles Theater and Capitol Theatre.

Lights at Temple Square One of downtown’s most popular holiday traditions. Featuring around one million lights, Temple Square draws droves of people from the Intermountain West. If you need to warm up, head into the Assembly Hall to catch a free musical performance. (Runs through January 1) 4

The Nutcracker Tchaikovsky’s holiday classic is back at Capitol Theatre with brand new stage sets and special effects. Don’t miss the first and longestrunning production of The Nutcracker in the nation! (December 2 - 30) 1
