Things to Know 

  • The purchase of advance tickets is strongly encouraged to save time waiting in line.
  • It takes 30-45 minutes to walk through the show.
  • Dress warmly  and wear comfortable footwear for this outdoor experience!
  • Seasonal food and beverage available for purchase.
  • Check the weather to plan your visit.

Refreshments & Entertainment

Homemade soup, chili, hot dogs, nachos, cookies, popcorn, candy bars, hot chocolate, coffee, water, soda and hot apple cider are all available in our Winterberry Café. You can also spice up your hot chocolate with a shot of Peppermint Schnapps or Baileys along with many other alcoholic treats!

Our Lights Glow Green

WPS Garden of Lights glows almost exclusively using energy-efficient LED lights, or light-emitting diodes, which are illuminated solely by the movement of electrons in a semiconductor material rather than a traditional filament. They not only consume up to 80% less electricity than traditional incandescent lights but also have a life span of five years or more, more than doubling the traditional light lifespan.

Photography Tips

  • Turn off the flash!
  • Shoot at twilight for better exposures
  • Keep camera steady to avoid blurry pictures
  • Visit earlier in the evening or on Sunday nights to avoid crowds
  • Dress warmly and wear gloves

Our Lights Glow Green

WPS Garden of Lights glows almost exclusively using energy-efficient LED lights, or light-emitting diodes, which are illuminated solely by the movement of electrons in a semiconductor material rather than a traditional filament. They not only consume up to 80% less electricity than traditional incandescent lights but also have a life span of five years or more, more than doubling the traditional light lifespan.

Photography Tips

  • Turn off the flash!
  • Shoot at twilight for better exposures
  • Keep camera steady to avoid blurry pictures
  • Visit earlier in the evening or on Sunday nights to avoid crowds
  • Dress warmly and wear gloves
