America First Credit Union invites community to experience award-winning display at Ogden Christmas Village, Riverdale, UT  November 25, 2020

Each year, Christmas Village illuminates Ogden’s downtown area with magnificent displays and holiday lights from the Saturday after Thanksgiving through January 1. This year, America First Credit Union invites you to experience its award winning display which is one of hundreds of tiny cottages decorated to create a winter wonderland at the Ogden Municipal Gardens.

Earlier this year, America First was honored with a Multifaceted Marketing Award for the Ogden Christmas Village Cottage at the Credit Union National Association’s 2020 Diamond Awards, which recognizes outstanding marketing and business development achievements in the credit union industry.

The magical cottage features a scene set with a family of snowmen – a mom, dad and two kids at night in Snowybook Forest and includes an animated storybook that flips pages as onlookers take in the enchanting display.

We’re glad to be part of the magic of Ogden Christmas Village, said John Coombs, America First Art Director who is the designer behind the cottage. We’re thrilled at how the cottage turned out and the happiness it brings to people who see it. We invite you to come experience it for yourself.

A behind-the-scenes look into the concepting and building of the cottage can be found here.
