An Amazing Season in 2021

Thank you to everyone who participated in, and helped with, The Lights of Christmas 2021 Drive-Thru event. It was a wonderful season!

22,000 cars came through the event. Lots of vehicles were festively decorated, or the people inside were dressed in Christmas swag laughing and singing out the windows. The amount of joy shown from families was amazing and could make even the most devout grinch smile.

The Lights of Christmas team is so thankful for the good weather most of the season. The days we needed to adjust because of weather went smoothly and the staff rocked at making the adjustments.

There were several new displays people loved and commented on, but the top display for me was the expanded Nativity scene. It guided guests through the Christmas story in such a beautiful and elegant way. It truly lined up with our mission to lavishly celebrate the Christmas message.

The staff and volunteers did an amazing job each and every night. We are currently taking down and putting away all the displays and beginning to plan for next year.

2022 will be the 25th anniversary of The Lights of Christmas, so make sure to check back for updates on what is in store for the season! As Bruce the Spruce would say, Cedar Later!
