WCKC visited Holiday Lights Spectacular, and these are some of the things we loved:
  • Easy paved trails over 40 acres. Very stroller friendly.
  • The holiday music, piped in everywhere
  • 7 year old Emma loved the large giraffes of lights, her favorite animal.
  • The tunnel of flashing lights and music*
  • Multiple areas for beautiful photo opportunities
  • A chance to see some animals.  No promises, but we saw wolves, bald eagles, goats and wild bunnies.
  • A safe outdoor event for the family. Families are able to stay socially distanced from others.

This is the perfect place to make a family holiday tradition.
