This Arkansas Christmas Light Display Was Nominated One of The Best in US
If you love Christmas lights Arkansas has plenty of them. If you haven't checked out this fun Christmas light display you really should take the time this holiday season to do so.
The Lights of the Ozarks is located in historic downtown Fayetteville. The display of lights has over half a million lights and it is lit up every night from 5 PM to 1 AM from now through New Year's Day.
There are other things to enjoy too. While you are taking a stroll through the lights you can enjoy Winter treats, hot chocolate and listen to holiday music. There are food trucks set up in the area you can purchase food too.
Santa is there on the weekends and you can meet him plus get your picture with him for free. Santa's schedule at the Lights of the Ozark is:
Friday, December 8 from 5 PM - 8:00 PM
Saturday, December 9 from 6 PM - 9:00 PM
Sunday, December 10 from 3 PM - 6:00 PM
Friday, December 15 from 5 PM - 8:00 PM
Do you have a child that has a letter to Santa? Santa has a special mailbox at the 'Lights of the Ozarks'. You can drop off the letters to Santa at Santa's mailbox located in front of the Experience Fayetteville Visitors Center. Just be sure to put your return address on the letter. Santa may know his way to your house but even Santa needs a return address.
The Lights of the Ozarks was nominated last year by USA Today as one of the top 20 Best Public Displays of Holiday Lights in the country. Sad to say that Lights of the Ozarks didn't make the top ten last year, but that doesn't change the fact that is is a winner in our eyes and anybody that has ever been to see this! Have you been to the Lights of the Ozarks before? Let us know how your experience was.
