Mooseheart’s 8th Annual Holiday Lights Show Features Expanded Route, Live Nativity, Santa

Mooseheart’s Holiday Lights show changes every year, but for its 8th annual show, which begins Nov. 24,  there are plenty of new things to attract visitors.

 

“I think the Holiday Lights show is an easy family tradition that can be enjoyed by everyone,” Mooseheart Executive Director Gary Urwiler said. “Whether it’s grandparents, parents or children, this is something anyone can experience.”

 

From its Nov. 24 opening, the show is open every night through Dec. 31. The show is open from 5  p.m. until 9 p.m. each night. The cost of the show remains $10 per vehicle.

 

New this year is a half-mile extension of the route to include Mooseheart’s farm area for the first time. A live Nativity scene will highlight this new portion of the show on Nov. 30, Dec. 7, 14 and Dec. 21-24.

 

“We wanted to incorporate a little more of the rustic, country portion of the campus, where we have horses and a dairy barn. We’ll have some of our animals, including sheep, goats and a donkey in addition to the people in the Nativity scene,” Urwiler said.

 

Elsewhere on the 2.3-mile route, new displays have been added and others moved from where they were in 2016, as Urwiler said, “so the show doesn’t become stagnant.”

 

Another favorite portion of the Holiday Lights experience is Santa Claus. Santa makes his annual return to the Mooseheart Field House on Dec. 8-10 and Dec. 15-17. Santa will sit for free photos from 5:30 and the line will be shut at 8:30 p.m., with those in line at 8:30 still allowed to see Santa.

 

In addition to Santa Claus, the fieldhouse will also be a place where children can enjoy a bounce house, crafts, holiday music and even a Christmas cookie.
