Christmas lights shine throughout Lebanon

With Christmas just a few weeks away, there are several places in Lebanon to enjoy festive light shows to help get into the Christmas spirit. 

Chad’s Winter Wonderland, located at 791 E. Old Laguardo Rd. in Lebanon, opened Thanksgiving and will continue with light shows each night from 6-10 p.m. until New Year’s Eve. This year marks the 34th year of the Christmas lights display. 

The drive-through light show features a nativity scene and live animals, along with more than 2 million lights on eight acres. A special mailbox is also set up to mail letters to Santa Claus. Santa will be there every night. 

According to organizers, the goal is to be open each night, but sometimes Chad’s Winter Wonderland will close due to weather. Closings are announced on the Facebook page Facebook.com/chadswinterwonderland. 

The cost to view the light show is $15 per carload or $20 for multi-passenger vans. Vehicles up to 9 feet tall may pass through. Credit/debit cards are not accepted. For more information call 615-758-8300 or email info@chadswinterwonderland.com. 

ChristmasLand, located at 1130 Trousdale Ferry Pike in Lebanon, features a light display that is in its 22nd year. Lights are on display each night from 5-9 p.m. 

The Christmasland display is put together by local pastor Kenneth Bowen as a reminder to keep Christ in Christmas. A drive through the two-acre display is free, although donations are accepted to offset electricity costs. 

A nightly light display at 912 Koble Drive in Lebanon features 15,000-plus lights set to music. 

The Festival of Lights in Lebanon, located at the Wilson County Fairgrounds, features a drive-through tour with animation throughout the fairgrounds, lighted nativity scenes, a fountain of life and the main attraction, the Grinch in the jail. 

More than 1 million lights will be on display, and letters to Santa Claus may also be dropped off at the Fiddlers Grove post office. The Festival of Lights is open Friday-Sunday in December from 5-9 p.m.
