South Jordan Candy Windows

IMG_2604

During the month of December you can see some really creative statues made entirely of candy. Candy Windows happens every year in South Jordan along Town Center Drive. The windows feature a Christmas creation made entirely of candy.

 

We really enjoyed walking around the shops and looking at the candy creations. Each shop that houses a candy statue has a peppermint sign out front. The statues are clearly visible through the storefront windows even if the shops are closed.

 

Watch for these signs that mark where the windows are located.

Each year there is a different theme. The first year we went it was Christmas Movies, but we have also seen a Star Wars Theme, and this year in 2016, the theme is Magical Beasts! We really enjoyed the Grinch and his dog Max, and the moving ferris wheel. Each of the statues was created out of candy. You could see jelly beans, licorice, smarties, and a lot of other colorful candies. We were there Sunday night around six,  so most of the shops were closed, but we still enjoyed walking around and looking at the statues. There were around 10 creations, all within a pretty confined area.

This was our favorite window. The ferris wheel moved and had lots of fun characters riding around.

Randy and I love the Christmas Story movie, so this window made us chuckle.

You can get up close with the Candy Windows even if the shops are closed.

 

This event is FREE. You can also print a scavenger hunt. This year you find all the candy canes, and you return it to City Hall to be entered into a drawing for a family night out. It’s also easy to find. It’s located on Towne Center Drive in South Jordan, which is slightly south of 10400 South and Redwood Road.
