Come to Village Park and enjoy beautiful lights and displays! Ride the Winterland Express, a g-24 scale replica CP Huntington engine, and count down the 12 Days of Christmas as you view unique holiday light displays. Manufactured in Italy, the Village Park Carousel features 1,800 lights, Brazilian oak decking, and charming hand painted Venetian murals.
The Celebration of Lights includes thousands and thousands of Christmas lights and holiday displays. Again, this year, kids of all ages will be able to visit Santa. Create a craft, enjoy smore’s around the fire pit and more! The park will also feature performances from the Kannapolis Singing Bears who will entertain you with a Christmas Carol performance. On various nights local community groups and musicians will perform your favorite Christmas songs.
The event kicks off with the Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony on November 20 and runs through December 30 (closed Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day), and is open from 6-9 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays and 6-10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
