Tickets are Affordable For Lights of Joy

When I learned that admission is charged per vehicle, it took me back to the days of the drive-in theaters. Do you recall trying to fit as many people into a car to experience a movie at the drive-in? Tickets are $20 per vehicle. You can purchase a season pass (5 visits) for $60 and a same night (2nd time- traffic permitting) $5. Overall, this is one of the most affordable Christmas experiences you will find.

Tip: Stop to listen to Rudolph perform as you near the exit.
