My daughter and I have visited Beech Bend’s Holiday Lights Spectacular twice this season and she always has a ball. A carload pass is only $15 ($14 if you buy it at a Jr. Foods, Houchens IGA store, or on the CVB’s website), and once you get in the park the petting farm and mini golf are free.
First you drive through over 2 miles of light displays, which is nice - but she always wants to hurry up and get to the fun stuff. They have a hayride and bus that will take you from the parking area to the park. It isn’t that far so we usually walk it.
Of course, we always have to “ride rides.” I bought the family pack of tickets which is $20 for 50. It was more than enough. You could probably get by with this if you have 2-4 kids (depending on how many times they want to ride the Rumbler!) New Year’s Eve they have a free fireworks show and live music. They also have outdoor ice skating for an additional fee.
