This event brings to life the spirit of the season with a dozen scenes that tell the story of Christmas through many different points of view, including a live Nativity on weekends. The Live Nativity is put on each weekend by local churches and animals as it comes to life. The lights will warm your heart and leave you with a spirit that will last through the Christmas season.

Carloads of people go through the winding path of lights each year. This event helps to fund different programs on the fairgrounds, along with purchasing additional lights each year for this event. You will see ginger bread men and reindeer flying through the air, angel trumpets announcing the birth and so much more!
