The event will also have its first Holiday Village, featuring bright festive lights, holiday music, refreshments, photos with Santa, local school choir performances and a hay maze! The Holiday Lights Spectacular will begin on Thursday, November 20 and run through Sunday, January 4. Here is the schedule from their website.
