Looking for a safe way to get into the holiday spirit this year? Head to the Festival of Lights at Watkins Regional Park. You can enjoy the event from the comfort of your car. Just grab a ticket online, head to the park any time between now and New Year’s Day, and stay cozy in your vehicle as you drive through the dazzling display.
Watkins Regional Park has been glammed up for the holidays with more than 2.5 million twinkling lights. Some are strung around trees, others depict fun holiday scenes—and many reside on the branches of the 54-foot LED tree! Its lights shimmer to the sound of holiday tunes. Tickets are just $8 when purchased online. And although you are allowed to purchase tickets on-site, only cash is accepted. Also note that, since there aren’t reserved dates or times, lines will be longer on the weekends. You can expect a shorter wait on Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday nights.
