    This display was really beautiful tonight at the volunteer reception at the fairgrounds. Very worth coming out for and the display has really been spruced up. Heard a lot of people wishing it could stay a walk-through display instead of the traditional drive-through. It was really nice to be able to take our time and really look at all the details without the gas fumes or feeling rushed.

  2. Steve LaPointe says:

    WE LOVE THEM! WE’LL BE OUT AT LEAST TWICE A WEEK WITH THE KIDS!

  3. Robyn says:

    I agree with the “walk through” option. We were wishing that was an option.

    My husband and I stopped by the lights tonight but they are not on. Today is only the 28th so they should still be going…we were not the only vehicle to drive in and be disappointed. We will try again tomorrow night, I hope it’s upland running! It is one of our favorite holiday traditions.

    The nice thing about this year was the renovations! Everything seemed to be updated and looked awesome! We as a family talked about how much we missed having it at the pepsi plant because it was so close and not such a drive. I see people are talking about walking through the light showcase, but we think that kind of ruins the fun. We love going dressed in our pj’s, letting the kids get out of their seats and sitting up front with us as we drive through. The lights were great this year. The 2 downfalls this year, the drive out to the fairgrounds, and the way it was set up, it doesn’t take but a couple minutes to see everything, at the Pepsi plant it was spread out and seemed to take longer, which for the kids, made it seem like there was much more. All in all, we love the Pastega lights and will enjoy them for years to come!
