Johnson Brunetti proudly presents Holiday Light Fantasia, Connecticut’s must-see family light show, as it returns for the 2019 holiday season! 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. The lighted animations celebrate not only Christmas, but also Hanukkah, New Year’s, Three Kings Day, and the winter season. 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. For extra fun, find Flurry the dog hidden among the lights, visit holidaylightfantasia.org and enter to win a new Samsung Galaxy Tablet!
Holiday Light Fantasia not only shares seasonal cheer but also helps to welcome thousands of children from Connecticut to the Channel 3 Kids Camp. Ticket sales make it possible for children to attend camp regardless of economic, physical, or developmental ability.
