DONATION BASED Walk-Thru Option for Christmas lights
Take A Walk-Thru Christmas Light Displays And Support Local Non-Profits. 100% of your donations go directly to that weekend’s featured non-profit(s)
What We’re Doing For 2023
Five years ago, we decorated a few of our cabins with Christmas Lights. We were reminded that we all need more Light in our lives, so each year, we’ve added more lights and more activities as the tradition grew. For the past two years, we have been honored to feature local non-profits in our donation-based drive-thru, and the community has given generously.
For 2022, our drive-thru experience is being replaced by our newly expanded walk-thru donation area, and we will have tens of thousands of more lights than the previous year! Our observation deck, wildlife center tour, and a special walk-around experience that we hope will connect you, your family, and the Joy of Christmas.
Can I just show up?
No. We encourage everyone to pre-register either in one of the adventure options or for the donation walk-thru. Those registered will be permitted to park.
How many lights do you have?
Great question! If you stretched out all of our Christmas light strands from one end to another, it would go on for more than 40 miles! So now, take those strands and put them on trees and buildings within a quarter mile radius. It’s gonna be fun! 😍
How long is the walk thru?
The walk thru is about a half mile of trails and light displays. However, you are more than welcome to stay as long as you like as there will be campfire areas amidst the lights. Grab a warm drink from our cafe and make it a night! On average guests typically plan 1hr-2hrs.
Who do my donations go to?
Each week we are honored to feature a non-profit organization. Check our non-profit page for who we are featuring for the time frame you are scheduled for.
What is the cost to enjoy the lights?
You can enjoy the lights two ways. $11 to walk through the lights with access to our 40 ft. observation deck and wildlife center. Or for $49-64 you can go ziplining. All experiences will have the opportunity to donate to our featured non-profit that evening. All donations go directly to the local non-profits.
Do you have food?
Our Cafe will be open during the following times and days of the Christmas Light schedule:
(Note: food service ends at 9PM)
Can I bring my dog?
Registered service animals are welcome!
Otherwise, pets are not. We love animals, in fact we have 2 whole areas dedicated to caring for animals- our farm and wildlife center! However, our property especially during our Christmas season is not conducive to having dogs.
