A beautiful collection of over one million lights is situated along a nearly two-mile drive through Goodwin Park at 1130 Maple Avenue on the Hartford/Wethersfield, Connecticut line.

This illuminated drive-through display opens on Thanksgiving Day and runs nightly through New Year’s Day from 5 pm to 9 pm each Sunday through Thursday and 5pm to 10pm Fridays and Saturdays. In addition to the light show, children can visit Santa on Friday and Saturday evenings from 5pm to 8pm, free with show admission.
