Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and to prevent spread of the virus we have made the difficult decision to cancel our Christmas light show and the opening of our candy store for the 2020 season.

We will open again next year on November 19th 2021. We will miss seeing everyone but look forward to a bigger and better 2021 season. Stay safe and please come see us next year.

With heavy hearts,

What a great bunch of young folks we have on staff. We started with a game of UNO, had Dinner at Backroads Pizza, exchanged gifts, went to Meadow Lights - Holiday Tour of Lights to see all the beautiful lights, rode the train and took pictures with Santa. Then they dropped me off (I’m the party pooper I guess)οΏΌlol and finished up the night going bowling and late night snack at Cookout.
