Beautiful! Interesting! Cool! Creative! Omaha’s newest Holiday tradition, Miracle on Farnam, offers visitors amazing window displays along a festively decorated street. Fourteen popular art and cultural organizations in Omaha have transformed ordinary window space into unique displays exemplifying their mission in visually engaging and interesting ways. This fun-filled, free Holiday event is perfect for people of all ages looking to experience the Holiday season in a unique way.

We visited on a perfect Friday evening at dusk and enjoyed a crisp night with a glowing sliver moon. Even my young children were engaged and excited to see the next window, especially the interactive window seen below.
Some of the windows told a story, while others were visually appealing, imaginative, and fun. Each window was different and unique, and truly captured the heart of each organization’s mission. We loved trying to figure out who designed the window (without looking at the sign) based on the display!
We each selected a different window as our favorite, even my kids! The winning window/organization, as determined by public vote, will receive $3000 donation courtesy of Midtown Crossing. Votes can be cast online or in person at any of Midtown Crossing’s retailers or restaurants (look for the Miracle on Farnam voting station).
Miracle on Farnam is free to the public, including three hours of free garage parking. The displays are available for viewing daily from 8am to 1am through New Year’s Day. Midtown Crossing’s holiday lights will also be lit throughout the season every evening at dusk.
