We have lived in Kentucky for 4 ½ years now and this year we finally saw the Southern Lights!
Southern Lights, presented by Toyota, is located on the grounds of the Kentucky Horse Park. Visitors stay in their cars to view the lights, driving through the campground and gazing at hundreds of lighted figures. Many of them are even animated (the running horses are my favorite).
After driving through the park for fifteen or twenty minutes, we arrived at a parking lot. I wasn’t aware of how many attractions there are at Southern Lights. There were vendors selling all kinds of great gifts, a train ride for the kids (or kids-at-heart), miniature trains, petting zoo, Santa Claus (Violet did not want to go see the Big Guy), pony rides and camel rides.
I was a nervous wreck watching Violet ride the camel. I shouted out, “Hold on tight!!” as the camel walked away from the loading dock. Even though Vi insisted that she wanted to ride it, we all wondered if she would freak out once the time came. But she had a blast!
We all had a great time at the Southern Lights. It was our first time ever at the Kentucky Horse Park (every year we say we are going to go) and we can’t wait to go again in the Spring.
It looks like we have added another Christmas tradition to our family’s holiday season. What about you? Do you have a special place you like to visit during the holidays? I would love to hear about the fun you have!
Until next time, Merry Christmas and God bless!
