The Lights of Christmas Festival brings families together

November 30 for 22 select nights through December, The Lights of Christmas Festival welcomes an average of over 68,000 people annually. People from all walks of life enjoy over one million lights in dazzling displays, music, drama, children’s activities, and more. The Lights of Christmas brings out the nostalgia of the season and offers many points of connection for people to enjoy a shared experience.

Couples enjoy romantic moments. More than a few marriage proposals have occurred at The Lights of Christmas. Families enjoy time with grandparents and extended family. Children loose themselves in the wonder and joy of the event. Here’s what some of our guests shared from last year:

“This is our family tradition. We look forward to it every year!!”

“We enjoy time with the kids. All the beautiful lights. The train ride. The pony rides. Just the Spirit of Christmas throughout the park.”

“We came twice this year! Once with my husband, myself, and our kids and a second time we brought my elderly mother and disabled sister for their first visit. They’ve never seen any Christmas light display like it and loved it! Another highlight is how wonderful the staff is!”

So, gather your family and friends, bundle up and come enjoy a Christmas experience that brings the holiday spirit to life!
