The 21st Annual Southern Lights holiday festival will return to the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, November 21 to December 31, 2014. The Kentucky Horse Park Foundation presents Southern Lights annually, a greatly anticipated holiday tradition for families all across Kentucky, in support of the programs, activities and facilities of the Kentucky Horse Park.
From 5:30 until 10:00 pm each evening, visitors will be awed by the dazzling display of majestic lights. The drive will begin at the Kentucky Horse Park Campground, and will proceed through an enhanced dreamland of dazzling lighted and often animated figures. While many displays represent the holiday season, favorites are customized to represent the Bluegrass state.
At the end of the driving route, visitors have the option to leave their cars behind and walk into the park to see a multitude of holiday happenings including seasonal entertainment, a petting zoo, pony rides, camel rides, model trains, holiday and craft vendors, refreshments and the Mini-Train Express. Special weekends and added exhibits or attractions will add to the holiday excitement throughout the event. The lights on the driving route are on each night through December 31, and the other holiday attractions will be open each night, with the exception of November 27 (Thanksgiving) and December 24 to 31.
The Southern Lights Stroll will kick off the event again this year with a 5K race and fun walk on Thursday, November 20. This is the only night the lights can be viewed on foot.
The American Bus Association (ABA) selected Southern Lights a Top 100 event for 2013 and 2014, which is an annual compendium of the best events for group travel in the United States and Canada. Winners are chosen from hundreds of celebrations, festivals, fairs, and commemorative events that have been nominated by ABA members. In addition, Southern Lights has been annually selected as a winner of the Southeast Tourism Society’s Top 20 Events and the Kentucky Travel Industry Association’s Top 10 Events.
