'Tis the season for Christmas on The River.  All the Christmas magic begins at Midnight November 24, 2023, the day after Thanksgiving.  The River will become, The Christmas Station.


The River will transform into Santa's favorite station, (and his 8 tiny reindeer, as well), while a winter wonderland of Christmas music 24 hours a day, warms our holiday hearts. In Great Falls, Montana, listening to The River has become as much a family tradition as decorating the tree and watching Christmas movies.
