The Fayette County Park Winter Wonderland Light Display will continue through December.

The first year the park hosted the light show was 1998. It was made possible by a donation of lights and decorations from Lacy and Lurabell Smith. In 2000 the park received another large donation from Elwood and Betty Maples.

Over the years various groups, organizations and families have donated materials and also time and labor to the Winter Wonderland event, making it a community endeavor. Visiting the winter wonderland lights at the park is a part of many families’ holiday tradition.

Entrance fee for the Winter Wonderland activities is $5 per vehicle.

Individuals may take photos of children with Santa or The Grinch with their personal cameras.
