r The Salem Pond Town Christmas Light display is one of the most spectacular in Utah. What makes this annual Christmas light show so uniquely dazzling is that most of the lighted Christmas trees are on rafts on the pond’s water to provide a wonderful reflection. Like most things it started many years ago with a couple of lighted trees on rafts and has now grown into a huge display of colorful lights reflecting in the water. It is a beautiful sight to behold. In addition to so many Christmas trees that you can’t keep track of counting them, there are swans, a pelican, a wonderful nativity scene, cartoon type characters, and a lot more. It is a place of electric light eye candy.
The Salem Pond, also known as Knoll Park is located at 200 West 300 South in Salem. The lights are turned on from 5:30 to 11:00 p.m. every night between now and January 1. The display is provided by Salem City, and there is no admission fee to drive around the pond and take in the light show. There are only a few places to park as you drive around the pond and in several places the street is narrow.
