r The holidays are a time filled with family togetherness, joy, laughter, excitement, a lot of love … and LIGHT! And, what better way to experience all of those than packing your entire car with family and friends while driving through a display of over a million lights depicting the most awesome of creations.
Since 1992, Spanish Fork has held its annual Festival of Lights as something that the whole family can enjoy from the comfort of their own car.
What to expect
When you first enter the festival, you will see a sign prompting you to turn your car radio to a special holiday station that will echo music from both inside and outside your car. From there, you will drive slowly through a brightly colored collection of lights that will take you through various themes.
You’ll see displays featuring the North Pole, The Nutcracker, Toyland and a Nativity complete with angels. And while it wouldn’t be the holidays without holiday-themed displays, the Festival of Lights has many other fun, and exciting themes to watch for. You’ll be taken through a winter sports section with an aerial ski jumper. There will be dinosaurs, cowboys, arches, and even a tunnel to drive through that will brighten your entire car!
There are so many themes — all of them listed on the city’s webpage — that you will just have see to believe.
