Santa Claus is Celebrating the Holidays with Light Displays!

Santa Claus, Indiana is full of holiday activities for the whole family. One is the Santa Claus Land of Lights. It’s a light adventure that stretches for 1.2 miles. 44News reporter Amanda Chodnicki took a trip to Lake Rudolph this morning to drive through our one-of-a-kind light display.

The Santa Claus Land of Lights will open this weekend Friday, December 9th through the 11th. And again from Friday, December 16th through the 31st, open nightly. People can drive through this light display between 5 p.m. and 9 p.m. Central Time. It cost $15 per car, but residents can get a $4 off coupon at tri-state McDonald’s.
