A Magical Evening Stroll at Vasona Lake County Park
Get ready to bundle up in your festive winter attire to stroll through 1.5 miles of spectacular holiday lights and displays for the entire family at Vasona Lake County Park in Los Gatos. Fantasy of Lights Walk-thru Nights are set for Saturday, December 2 and Sunday, December 3 from 4pm to 10pm.
Tickets go on sale Wednesday, November 1. Tickets must be purchased in advance and the earlier the better. The Walk-thru is a unique opportunity with tickets selling out quickly since it’s inception in 2013.
The show is a feast for the eyes because thousands of twinkling lights are used to form larger-than-life animated displays that visitors can see up close on foot. The sights and sounds of an erupting volcano in the dangerously fun dinosaur den, Santa shooting hoops, a pen of playful penguins, blazing cannons, a tunnel of moving lights, and a 90-foot twinkling tree will have spectators “oohing and aahing” throughout your walk.
To round out the magical weekend, there is international food and beverages by Moveable Feast to purchase, costumed characters, visits with Santa and Mrs. Claus and a holiday photo booth hosted by 94.5 KBAY radio station (Saturday only).
Visitors should bear in mind that Fantasy of Lights is approximately 1.5 miles long, a 3-mile round-trip. Make sure your holiday attire includes comfortable walking shoes and warm clothing. Consider bringing a flashlight too!
There is no parking at the event. FREE parking and shuttle service is available at Netflix, 121 Albright Way, Los Gatos. Ridesharing with Lyft or Uber is highly encouraged.
