Sadly...all good things come to an end. 😥

Tonight is our last night of Bull Run's Festival of Lights!

Come out tonight and say good-by to the holiday season with a festive drive through the holiday lights.

Thank you everyone who supported our show. Every visit to the light show helps conserve 12,000 acre of parkland!

Is the drive single lane or dual lane? I heard a rumor that it had converted to two lanes and it was sometimes difficult to see the opposite side of the road, but I can't see for sure in the pictures. Hoping the rumor is unfounded.
Can you buy tickets in advanced?
Thank you so much for a wonderful time. Took my husband, son and his girlfriend to this winter wonderland. Drove 2 hours there and enjoyed every minute of it. Hope to do it again in the future. Definately worth the time and money.
How much are the pictures with Santa?
Another year in the books and what a year! 😍😍. Friday night at 8pm, the rain had stopped and still we didn’t wait any time to begin our adventure. We drove straight up to the booth. I now always want to go when it’s raining/has rained 😉. Although, we’ll probably be back so we can enjoy the festival on a dry night! Santa, oh Santa...I can’t even say enough about Santa at Bull Run. He is simply, the BEST! My 7 year old STILL can’t believe the REAL Santa is there. He was swoon last year with this Santa and swoon again this year. My shy shy boy went up to Santa, for the first year, alone! Santa took his time to review his wish list and his Nice List Certificate we had got in the mail from Santa. I wish I had gone up to hear the sweet conversation. The lights were gorgeous too but seriously if you’re in the market for the worlds best Santa, Bull Run is where he’s at! The coffee and s’mores weren’t bad either 😉. Thank you Santa! Thank you Bull Run! 😍🎅🏼❤️
Open every day?
Does the carnival run during the week as well?
I need two tickets for Sunday. If anyone wants to sell their tickets, I will buy them. Thanks.
I have not received notification of when to pick up our shirts. Are you doing it ahead of time or only the day of the event?
Is there a Snowflake Stampede this year?
Are the rides and everything stilk there until the 13th? 😀
Great time to visit the Festival of Lights. No traffic at all. It is a beautiful and unique place to visit with your kiddos. The best part that I enjoyed at this place was Winter Wonderland; it was like rain of lights falling down from the sky 🌌. I loved it.
