A Visit to Christmas Village and the Sights, Sounds, Tastes and Smells of an Old-Fashioned Christmas . . . Overly's Style.
Each season, over 600 volunteers tirelessly give of their time to bring Overly's Country Christmas® to life. Through volunteers' efforts, Overly's continues its charitable work, providing memorable moments to children in some of the area's most neglected neighborhoods, bestowing unforgettable experiences to those with life-threatening and terminal illnesses, establishing an outlet for trouble youths to give back to the community on a year- round basis, and helping Share the Magic for those in need by providing a permanent donation site for nonperishable food, toys or pet food.
Familiar sights, sounds, experiences and magic await all those who enter in great anticipation of reliving holiday memories and experiencing new ones. Read below for more details.
Strolling the Lights & Sights
Some of the highlights you will enjoy include:
The clang of the crossing bells and the shriek of the steam whistle herald your arrival at Hartman Station, a g-gauge model train display and museum. Stop by and see the rolling stock of Dr. King Hartman and the four-season layout designed by volunteers Jan Vogt and her late husband, John. A delight for children and adults alike.

For those with a sweet tooth, the Sweet Shop is a must-see, must-taste stop in Christmas Village. This tiny shop is filled with homemade fudge and handmade holiday-themed candies, made especially for Overly's Country Christmas®.
Country fare is on the menu every night in the Country Kitchen, an outdoor barbecue. You'll enjoy burgers and hot dogs cooked on a fire grill. Warm up from the inside out by sipping on hot beverages including hot chocolate, cappuccino and warm apple cider, which always tastes best when you enjoy it by the bonfire.

The Snowman Project
A unique partnership with community supporters, the Westmoreland County Community College Technology Center American Society of Student Welders, and Overly's Country Christmas®. This project of gigantic proportions -- provided students with a unique and unforgettable learning experience with their first snowman, 21.5' tall and weighing 1,100 pounds. In 2015, the students completed a Snowman Family with a Mrs. Snowman and Junior, both of gigantic proportions. They are new to our display this year, so it's a sight you'll want to see for yourself.
