“Staying in the car and riding around with the kids in the warm backseat never got anymore fun.”  - Heather Heuman

This holiday season, once you have all your special people together and you are ready for something to do that is fun, free, and right here in our midst, head on over to Freeman Lake Park for Christmas in the Park! It’s a brilliant display of lights with over 100 displays. It’s easy to find yourself going through several times over this Christmas season. This is an event where you enjoy all the beauty of the lights through your car windows and stay in the comforts of your car.  There’s no getting out of the vehicle and there’s something about it that I find to be truly special.

Don’t let the date full you because it will be up and ready for you to see starting the day before Thanksgiving. You won’t have to wait until December.

An illuminated roadway will guide you through this beautiful spectacle of Christmas Spirit. Lights glimmering upon the lake will create that special Christmas Magic for you and your family.

TIP: It gets much busier on the weekends, so plan accordingly.

Admission is FREE, but donations are

gladly accepted.
