Have you heard of Magic Town? If not, you are missing out on a local treasure.








Magic Town is Michael Garman’s 3,000 square-foot sculptural theater.  This miniature city is handmade and has many different city scenes.  They are based on Garman’s travels around the world.  Magic Town also includes holograms, mirrored illusions, and much more. Magic Town is located in Old Colorado City and includes free popcorn and a scavenger hunt. Michael Garman has created sculptures that honor extraordinary American Heroes at affordable American prices. Cowboys, firefighters, soldiers, linemen, aviators and more.

According to Garman’s website, “Magic Town is a place where stories come alive!  So each autumn, we invite students to tell us their stories.  The Magic Town Literary Contest provides an opportunity to discover what happens at night when all the sculptures come alive.”
