Spanish Fork Festival of Lights

Every year we head down to Spanish Fork for the city’s Festival of Lights.  This is one of our favorite places to go for Christmas lights, and Dad’s family has been going there every Christmas season for a long time.  The cost for the Spanish Fork Festival of Lights is per car and they have fun light displays to drive past.  

They have some really fun scenes with dinosaurs, cowboys, toys, and a Nativity.  They always have Christmas music playing on 99.9 for you to listen to as you drive through the park. These lights aren’t timed to the music, but it provides a nice background. We love going to the Spanish Fork Festival of Lights because it is a great deal for families and our kids enjoy these fun light displays.

We loved this gingerbread house.
This wall of lights was a new feature in 2014.
Our boys loved the volcano!
There is a nativity made of lights!

If you go early in the season, you can drive through twice. We love driving through a few times so that we can see everything we missed the first time. Starting the 2nd week of December, they close off the option to circle through again. The line can get pretty busy to drive through, so we recommend going on a weekday if possible, and the earlier the better.

The big castle is fun to see.
You can see that there are a TON of lights!

To get to the Spanish Fork Festival of Lights, take 1-15 to the Highway 6 exit.  Head East toward the canyon and follow the signs for the lights.  You will turn right just before entering the canyon.  The Little Acorn (a restaurant) sits on the corner where you need to turn.  You can find information about this event at the Spanish Fork City website. This site has directions, dates & times, and some photos of the lights.
