Christmas at the Cody’s

NORTH PLATTE, Neb. – The annual Christmas at the Cody’s will take place in Dec. at Buffalo Bill Ranch State Historical Park in North Platte.

Every year many area organizations and volunteers decorate every nook and cranny of the Cody mansion turning the home into a seasonal wonderland. This festive event includes lights on the outbuildings, grounds and Scout’s Rest Ranch Barn to bring visitors holiday cheer from the Cody era.

Buffalo Bill will welcome you to his home where local musicians provide entertainment in the piano room as guests tour the mansion. Take the chill away with hot cider, Christmas cookies and roasted chestnuts in the old storehouse outside the mansion.
Horse drawn wagon rides will take folks around the grounds of the state historical park and Santa will be listening to Christmas wishes along with a scavenger hunt for kids in the Scout’s Rest Ranch barn. Park visitors can adorn a military appreciation tree with a special service member’s name.

A ribbon cutting and lighting will be Dec. 7 at 5:30 p.m. Additional dates for Christmas at the Cody’s include Dec. 7-8; 14-15; 21, 22 and 23, from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. Admission is $8 per person, $5 for kids 4-12, and kids 3 and under are free.
