LAKE-HolidayLightBox_3_800x500Lake Compounce announced their second annual “Lake Compounce Holiday Lights”, a seasonal holiday themed family event taking place on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evenings beginning on Nov. 29th.

‘Holiday Lights’ will provide full family entertainment for all ages, and include festive activities such as a spectacular light show every half hour at the main gate, which will feature tens of thousands of dancing lights set to holiday music. Kiddieland rides and family themed rides will be in operation. The Train will be transformed into the North Pole Railway, operated by a very special, uniformed train conductor with a magical holiday story to tell.

There will be indoor activities such as cookie decorating and gingerbread house making. Children will be given the opportunity to customize their very own letter to Santa, and will then receive a personalized letter sent directly to them, from Santa, just a few days later.

On the Kiddieland stage children can enjoy Story Time with Mrs. Clause. There will be carolers strolling throughout the park, an ice carver creating unique, frozen sculptures, and lots more festive entertainment including clowns making balloon animals and lots of holiday characters greeting guests. The childhood favorite; photos with Santa is not to be missed in the Winterwonderland Starlight Theatre. The park’s gift shops will also be loaded with holiday themed merchandise for sale, so guests can get their holiday shopping done, too.

“Holiday Lights was a tremendous success last year, something that guests of all ages really enjoyed. Seeing the park at Holiday time, decked out in lights is truly amazing,” says Jerry Brick, General Manager. “We have hundreds of thousands of lights, and exciting holiday entertainment and activities throughout. We hope this will become a family tradition for years to come.”

“Holiday Lights is a very unique event to this area. Combining amusement park rides with Holiday celebrations is not something you typically see in Connecticut” says Randy Fiveash, Director of tourism. “The folks at Lake Compounce have been preparing for this for months, and have put together a truly magical family experience that no one should miss.”

Admission is $14.99 plus tax per adult, $10.99 plus tax for children 4 through 10, and free for children 3 and under. Season pass holders may enter for free with their 2013 or 2014 pass.
