visited by hundreds of thousands of people throughout the course of the month-long festival. Every year, throughout the month of December, you can tour our Christmas Light Displays with more than 5 million lights and over 500 illuminated displays."
What a great time we had on Monday! The RV park, along with most of the other RV parks in the area, put together a package - dinner, a tram ride through the Festival of Lights, capped by a children's mariachi band for entertainment.
Dinner was good - roast beef, mashed potatoes, corn, green beans, roll and a cookie. After dinner, we boarded the tram for what I thought would be a short drive throughout the block. Imagine my surprise when the ride took close to 45 minutes and we saw the most incredible light show. There were a lot of themes - Christmas around the World, the 12 days of Christmas, Fairytale Christmas, just to name a few.
The beautiful lights were enhanced by the atmosphere - we were also treated to a Christmas carnival with different rides, to include a ferris wheel. Dave kept wondering where they store all this stuff after Christmas.
The children's Mariachi band was wonderful to watch. We were kept in stitches by a young man who looked like he wanted to make singing to the ladies a career move. Dave also found a taco stand, so he was a happy camper.
All of this cost us $12 a person; a steal, in my opinion. I hope the RV park continues this tradition in the future. It was well worth every penny we spent.
I was very sad when I got home, to realize that only a very few pictures actually were decent enough to show. I was seated in the middle, and the constant movement made most of them blurry. I hope, though, that these select few will give an idea of the grand scope of this event.
