Start a New Family Tradition
Go See the Lights
hether you are following a family tradition or creating a new memory, the drive-through fantasy animated display in Middletown is a great place to begin. Located in Smith Park and around the beautiful lake, the display is open nightly through December 31 from 6-10pm, rain or shine. Last year more than 20,000 vehicles toured the light display. According to Flo Randall, chairwoman of the event which runs through New Year’s Eve, “It is getting bigger and better with new and old displays so people will see something different every year.” On December 15, at 7 p.m., local hot air balloon pilots and their crews will inflate the balloons and light them up with the propane burners to become a part of the night-time show at Smith Park. As with all balloon events, high winds or rain/snow could prevent the event. On Friday and Saturday nights thru Dec. 23, Santa and Mrs. Claus will be on hand to greet children. Photos with Santa are $10 (or two of the same pose - $15). Santa’s house is right around the first corner on the right with plenty of parking. You will circle around the lake seeing animated displays such as jumping reindeer, Santa’s workshop, the new dancing bears and the twelve days of Christmas. You enter and exit through the tunnel of lights. Admission is by cash donation. Guests set their own admission fees. To visit, take I-75 to the Middletown Exit 32 and turn west. Take SR 122 to the downtown area. The event is off Verity Pkwy, Smith Park, 500 Tytus Ave. in downtown Middletown, 45042. Visit our website for more information at www.lightupmiddletown.
