Experience holiday magic with friends and family at Christmas Wonderland in Rock Springs Park! The 4 million+ light display opens the day after Thanksgiving on November 27th and runs until December 27th. The display can be driven through with a vehicle and offers a walk-through night for pedestrians! The event also features a Santa's Village that provides photo opportunities with Santa and a holiday tree decorating competition sponsored by local businesses and schools.
The display is put together over several months by the "Grandpa Gang", a group of retirees and volunteers who work tirelessly to bring the millions of lights to glowing life. Christmas Wonderland is free with a suggested donation of $7 per vehicle (cash only) and $1 per person in vehicles with 10+ passengers. Donations go towards supporting local charities and organizations. You can donate lights to the Grandpa Gang by calling 618-463-1070.
