Since 1997, Harrison Smith Park, just east of downtown Upper Sandusky, is transformed into a fabulous light show for the month of December. Through the volunteer efforts of many individuals, organizations and businesses, the 33 acres of the park are ablaze with millions of lights and a myriad of unique light displays along the drive through the park.

A donation per car is requested: proceeds benefit a local charitable organization that is selected yearly.

Come...     Bring a carload...     Drive Thru...     Enjoy!
