KENTUCKY’S SOUTHERN LIGHTS: A SPECTACULAR SIGHT ON A HOLIDAY NIGHT!

 If you want to see your children’s eyes light up with excitement during the holiday season, visit the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington when it presents the “Southern Lights”. 

Southern Lights is a 3 mile driving tour that serves as the biggest fundraiser for the park.   The displays include lifelike horses streaking across the finish line at Keeneland and Churchill Downs racing courses, thousands of twinkling lights, arches, and southern hospitality and entertainment at its best. 

The Southern Lights tour is open each night from 5:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. from November 20 – December 31.

Southern Lights is one of Kentucky’s largest Christmas displays and appeals to every age group.

New figures are added each year for thousands of visitors to this spectacular event. 

Children are amazed to see all the twinkling lights and displays.  It will be the highlight of the season for a child.  Once the driving tour is finished visitors leave their car and enjoy a petting zoo, gift shop, refreshments and a photo and visit with Santa!

So folks, if you are ever in Kentucky during Christmas don’t miss this delightful holiday sight.

The following is a link to the Southern Lights website where you can watch a video showing some of the driving tour:  http://www.southernlightsky.org/media.htm

Hope everyone is enjoying preparing for the holiday season!

  1. I can imagine that is a spactular sight. I will go to the web site and take a peek. We have something like that (not as spactular for sure) at the Burns Park. It is amazing the things cities do to brighten up the Holidays.
    Merry Christmas friend.

  2. How neat, Judy…. That would definitely make MY eyes light up… Maybe one of these years we’ll drive up there for it. Thanks so much for sharing.
