For the Family
Southern Lights is a greatly anticipated holiday tradition for families all across Kentucky, in support of the programs, activities and facilities of the Kentucky Horse Park.
An enhanced dreamland of dazzling lighted and often animated figures followed by a walk into the park to see a multitude of holiday happenings including seasonal entertainment, a petting zoo, pony rides, camel rides, model trains, holiday and craft vendors, refreshments, the Mini-Train Express and added exhibits or attractions will add to the holiday excitement throughout the event. The lights on the driving route are on each night through December 31, and the other holiday attractions will be open each night, with the exception of November 26 (Thanksgiving) and December 24 to 31.
The American Bus Association (ABA) selected Southern Lights a Top 100 event for 2013 and 2014, which is an annual compendium of the best events for group travel in the United States and Canada. Winners are chosen from hundreds of celebrations, festivals, fairs, and commemorative events that have been nominated by ABA members. In addition, Southern Lights has been annually selected as a winner of the Southeast Tourism Society’s Top 20 Events and the Kentucky Travel Industry Association’s Top 10 Events.
