Gloria DisplayThat question is often asked during the months leading up to the opening of The Lights of Christmas. And every year, there are new things to discover when you come to The Lights!

The Victorian Lighthouse Inn is emerging this year as the Bayside Inn. There, you will find Harbor Light Gifts, a shop reminiscent of a seaside trading post, with jewelry and unique hand-made items from global artists, gourmet coffee and teas, and other never-ordinary treasures. Bayside Inn also features face painters and a wreath/swag making shop.

The Joyland Depot, a food venue where you could purchase a quick snack or beverage is changing into the Sweet Stop this year. You will still find snacks and beverages, but it will also feature delectable cookies and candies. Come treat your sweet tooth!

Of course, the light displays are always changing. The Gloria light display near the Nativity Scene has been expanded and now includes more angels. The flying ducks that used to be featured at the pond in front of Cedar Lodge are back this year, a part of the Natural Wonders display near Bruce the Spruce.

On the entertainment stages around the event, many popular performers are returning for another year, but the Joyland Concert Hall, Tinhorn Town, and Starry Night Coffee House will all feature some new performers. Take a look at the performance schedule on the Camp’s Lights of Christmas website to see who will be here and when.

Come enjoy The Lights of Christmas this year, and lavishly celebrate the gift of God’s Son to the world. The Lights are open for 18 nights between December 5 and December 29, 2013.
