Christmas Park Land of Lights is a drive through Christmas Park with over four million lights, 2,000 wood cut outs, over 60 scenes over one mile long! There are 50 motion controlled lighted scenes, seven tunnels, fourteen arches and a concession stand. Santa Claus, starting Thanksgiving night.
Tour buses are welcome but prior notification in advance of arrival is requested and it is recommended that buses visit during the week if possible. Weekends are very busy and usually bumper to bumper traffic.
Christmas Park Land of Lights opened in 1998 and has grown each year with visitors from all 50 states and many visitors from out of the country. Lights have been purchased from all over the United States and from other countries. All the wood cut outs and the majority of the metal art were designed and constructed on the park grounds. Each year they try to add new scenes, new art, and new music in hopes that it brings out the child in all of us and helps everyone to remember and celebrate the true meaning of Christmas.
Please no trailers, steep grades. Call ahead if there are more than 16 people in your group.
