PARADE
This Christmas Eve, don't just sit at home awaiting the coming of Christ—or your presents. Snowbird promises a white Christmas like never before with its Christmas Eve Torchlight Parade & Fireworks. Join them at dusk on the Plaza Deck for bonfires, the Torchlight Parade and a great fireworks display. At the end, Santa Claus will rappel out of the tram to say hello to the kids. Snowbird Ski Resort, Little Cottonwood Canyon, Highway 210, free. Snowbird.com

SLEIGH RIDE
They may not be reindeer, but they're just as wild and interesting, minus the flying. Hardware Ranch Wildlife Management Area offers a unique opportunity to get up close to wild Rocky Mountain Elk on a horse-drawn sleigh. So go Visit the Elk while you can.

KNITTING
Too late now to knit a scarf for the holidays. But how about a hat? Blazing Needles is offering Free Beginning Knitting, where you will learn to knit a hat. The class is free, all you have to do is purchase your materials, and you will be on your way to becoming a knitter. Open to all genders, ages and skill levels. 1365 S. 1100 East, Saturday, Dec. 26, 10:30 a.m., free, see Community Beat, p. 51. Blazing-Needles.com

FROZEN ART
You can witness the amazing creation of ice castles during the eighth season of the Midway Ice Castles. With a team of up to 20 ice artists, Ryan Davis and ice artist Brent Christensen have fashioned towers, archways, tunnels and slides. It all started with an attempt to build a backyard ice cave. Davis and Christensen developed a way to freeze water layer-by-layer to create walls about 10 feet thick and castles weighing some 25 million pounds and taking about a month to construct. 2002 Soldier Hollow Road, Midway, 888-407-4054, Sunday, Dec. 27 through spring thaw, 3-9 p.m., Monday-Thursday; 3-11 p.m., Friday; noon-11 p.m., Saturday, $6-$12.

Kristen Brown, functional medicine nurse practitioner and founder of Altheda Health, will give a Wellness Talk about stress, hormones, autoimmunity and how functional medicine can help you achieve optimal health. Office Evolution, 221 Historic 25th St., Ogden, Monday, Dec. 28, 12:30 p.m., free, seating limited. AlthedaHealth.com
