Our fun visit to Koziar’s Christmas Village

On December 15, we had the pleasure of being invited to visit Koziar’s Christmas Village in Bernville, PA. It isn’t your typical Christmas lights display, it is much more!

When you first arrive at Koziar’s, you see thousands and thousands of lights. The site was just amazing and brought huge smiles to my kids faces. We parked our car, which parking is always free, and headed to the front ticket booths. Everything ran so super smooth to get in, you just walk up to the booth, get your tickets and enter. When we stepped in, we were greeted instantly by Rudolph and Frosty. My daughter loved taking her picture with the characters and even gave Rudolph a kiss! For ticket prices and hours, visit here.

We than followed the arrows on the ground to explore Koziar’s. I loved that it was set up this way, so there was no confusion on which way to walk or go, there were never crowds walking in different directions and you got to see everything they had there. Also, I loved that I was allowed to bring Billy’s stroller in. Whenever he gets upset, his stroller is the one place he can go to to calm down. So, it was a big help having it with us. We started to walk the village and one of the first things we saw, a HUGE train display. The had quite a few trains running on a few different tracks. Billy stood there for over 10 minutes until we told him it was time to go on.

After leaving the train area, we walked the rest of Koziars. We spent 3 hours there, looking at all the amazing Christmas displays they had and all the wonderful lights. They also have a few places you can get food and hot chocolate at. We just had to purchase two of their collector mugs with our hot chocolate and soft pretzels. We stopped in to their toy store to check out all the toys they had for sale, and went to visit Santa, but Billy was too scared so we passed. You can read about what window displays and other things you will see here.

One of my son’s favorite things are trains. What was amazing at Koziar’s, they had a ton of train displays. Not only was there a huge one when we first walked in, but we saw a train at the Kissing Bridge, a super adorable train window display, one that Billy stood at for 20 minutes before letting us go to the next thing, and even an indoor train display. I loved that Billy had so much to see and enjoy there. Even with his sensory issues, he was able to really enjoy the lights throughout Koziar’s and was so excited about the trains, that we had no meltdowns our whole visit.

I have to say visiting Koziar’s Christmas Village was a great family fun night out! I would definitely recommend a visit to anyone. There is so much to see and do. Even for a child with autism and sensory issues, there was lots to explore and experience. We will be going back again in the future! Thanks so much to Beverly for inviting us to explore your amazing Christmas Village!

Koziar’s Christmas Village is still open everyday now until January 2, 2016. I highly recommend stopping in for a visit. You can read all about Koziar’s on their website, here.  If you visit or have been before, let me know all about the fun you had in our comments!
