Load the family into the car and enjoy Butch Bando’s Holiday Fantasy of Lights at Alum Creek State Park Campgrounds from November 16 through January 1. The Drive-Thru Light Show will feature tons of twinkling light displays, before you stop at Santa’s House at Cross Creek Camping Resort (3190 South Old State Rd.). This event will be sure to get your family into the holiday spirit. New this year, all holiday lights have been upgraded to LED, so you can expect a more brilliant and spectacular light show than in the past. Stay warm and dry as you drive through 3 miles of holiday lights this Christmas season.
Visit with Santa each night through December 23 at Santa’s House, where you can hang out with big guy and take a photo. Take a few photos of your own for $5, or use Santa’s photographer and pay $5 for an emailed photo, or $10 to have a 4×6 printed to take home that night. Proceeds from the photos benefit Recreation Unlimited. Santa’s House has free hot chocolate sponsored by Nestle and Sierra Mist with Cranberry sponsored by Pepsi, and they may even have a sweet treat available to enjoy some nights.
Browse the gift store at Santa’s House while you’re there, and you can even come back to make surprise purchases during the day. The gift store at Santa’s House will be open from 9 am – 5 pm Monday through Saturday, and from 11 am – 5 pm on Sunday. The gift shop is closed on Thanksgiving Day, but Santa’s House will be open in the evening. The shop will also be closed for shopping on Christmas Eve, but Santa’s House will open in the evening for cookies and cocoa (Santa will be busy making his rounds through the world).
