The Festival of Lights, now in its 24th year of operation in Spanish Fork, is bigger and better than ever. As one of the only “drive-through” Christmas lights displays in Utah County, it carries the distinction of being the best deal in the area. Most drive-through lighting experiences charge $20 per car, but at the Festival of Lights, residents can bring the whole family and anyone else that can fit into their car for $7 per carload. Or they can bring a large passenger van or any vehicle towing a trailer for $20 or a bus for $30.

Last year, the festival featured the North Wind blowing hard and changing its fairytale castle in a “Frozen” castle. It was extremely popular, so that display has been included again this year. Every year, the festival is made more brilliant as more and more fixtures are refittted with LED bulbs.

There are a myriad of themes throughout the park where visitors can enjoy Santa’s candy cane factory, Dickens-style villagers, cowboys and lots of friendly flying geese, grazing deer, jumping frogs and butting rams. The beautiful pond boasts sea monsters, swans and other aquatic themes. The Festival of Lights will open every evening at 6 p.m. and remain open until 10 p.m. through New Year’s Day. The festival is located in Canyon View Park, 3300 E. Powerhouse Rd., Spanish Fork.
