Where the Best Xmas Lights Are!!

Every Christmas I just have to see lights. It really puts me in the Holiday mood. So bundle up in your warmest coat and grab a to go cup of steaming hot cocoa and get ready for some holiday cheer!! My favorite place to go every year is THE GIFT OF LIGHTS at Sunset Park (Nov 15-Jan 1.) It gets bigger and better every year. Sunday thru Thursday 5-10PM and Friday thru Saturday including Holidays are 5-9PM. The entrance is on Eastern just before Sunset Road on the right. It is $13 per vehicle and $15 on the weekends (FRI & SAT.) However, if you bring a nice sized bag of clothing in good condition to donate to Goodwill, they give you $2 off. They also have hot cocoa for sale but I think it's a bit pricey for what it is. Next, there is the Bellagio Garden. It's always free and beautifully decorated for the Holidays. It's a nice little walk through. Another favorite is Opportunity Village's Magical Forest. All proceeds go to the people of Opportuinity Village which is really cool. It's located at 6300 W. Oakey Blvd. Hours are 5:30-9 p.m. Sun. - Thurs. and 5:30-10 p.m. Fri.-Sat. (Nov. 21 through Jan. 02.) General admission is $9.50 for adults, $7.50 for ages 3-11. An adult passport is $16 and a children's passport is $14 with access to unlimited rides. These are just a few of the many other things available.
