Mooseheart’s 12th annual Holiday Lights Show returns

Visitors drive through campus to see lighted displays

MOOSEHEART – Mooseheart’s 12th annual Holiday Lights Show will kick off at 5 p.m. Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, officials announced in a news release.

This year’s show will run 36 nights from 5 to 9 p.m. through New Year’s Eve, Dec. 31.

The suggested donation is $20 per car. All proceeds from the show benefit Mooseheart.

A year ago, 20,000 carloads of visitors came to see the show, the release stated.

Mooseheart’s Holiday Lights show consists of a 1.8-mile trip through the Mooseheart campus for the public to see holiday-themed lighted displays. Holiday-colored floodlighting features on some Mooseheart buildings.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the Santa Claus evenings have been canceled this year, the release stated.

However, anyone who wishes to mail a letter to the North Pole can do so from a special Tommy Moose Mailbox at the exit of the show – and delivery to Santa is guaranteed.

Mooseheart is located 2 miles north of I-88 on the west side of Route 31 near Batavia.
