This year to commemorate 10 years of the Light Show, we are instituting a Christmas Tree Lane Charity.
Begin your adventure by embarking on a one-mile journey through a radiant wonderland, aglow with over two million dazzling lights. As you drive, you'll be captivated by a spectacular array of outdoor illumination, featuring everything from fully enclosed light tunnels and a majestic wreath arch to whimsical scenes of bears gracefully skating, dancing trees and many more. After this spectacular drive, visitors can then pull up to Skylands Stadium's Christmas Village, where a treasure trove of additional holiday merriments awaits.
Patrons can relish shopping and eating while making memorable moments along the way including photo ops and a visit with Santa - take a selfie or a photo. You can’t have a great event without some great food and beverages. Sweet tooth enthusiasts are invited to take a seat at the S'mores Station and toast marshmallows over a comfortably warm fire pit. For those looking for something heartier, there will be a tantalizing selection of hot food and beverages. Double S Smokehouse will be cooking up its fantastic barbeque, and reservations will be accepted. And if the need to feed is still there, visitors can stop by the Ice Cream Shop and Hot Chocolate Bar and enjoy delicious ice cream and custom-made hot chocolate drinks. Kids can add finishing touches to their desserts including sprinkles, marshmallows, and other sweet bits and pieces. Meanwhile, the grownups can heat up their beverages with shots of Irish cream, Sambuca, and other liquors.
