More information from VNU:

The first stop upon arrival onto Village Circle shares the Christmas story of the birth of Jesus Christ through a Nativity scene. This scene includes a narration of the Christmas story and as different parts of the story are shared, each element will light up. The narration of the story is set between two Christmas songs. The next stop is NEW this year and will feature a 14-foot Christmas tree, dancing arches, and candy canes set to Christmas music. The third stop features a 16-foot animated pyramid of Christmas trees that dance to the music. This impressive display is followed by a fun lighted display of Frosty the Snowman set to favorite children’s Christmas carols. The final stop, “Christmas at the North Pole” display is a series of Santa scenes and North Pole characters as Santa and his team prepare for his night of gift giving.

Make the Christmas light display at the Village a holiday tradition. Whether you experience it with your spouse, children, grandchildren or your friends, it is one of those opportunities you don’t want to miss. The Christmas lights display allows everyone to experience the joy of the Christmas season in a unique and meaningful way.
