Come join us for our 2021 Trail of Lights! We were so sad to cancel in 2020 so we are super excited to be planning our Trail of Lights for 2021!

The trail runs most days in December and is a walking trail through approximately 8 acres of lighted exhibits. Most nights feature live entertainment on the stage next to our yule log where guests can enjoy complimentary marshmallows and hot chocolate. Santa Claus flies in most nights from the North Pole and will be in his house to greet everyone! There will also be several special event nights throughout the run of the trail. During our 3rd Annual Chocolate Night on December 11th, guests can purchase a ticket to taste 10 samples of delectable chocolate from various vendors.

Another special event will be our Christmas Melodrama which will run Friday and Saturday nights from December 3rd to 18th. Entry will be by donation but the seating will be limited for each of the two shows each evening so reserve your tickets now! CLICK HERE to reserve your seat!

The EmilyAnn's Trail of Lights is free to attend; however, donations are graciously accepted at several donation stations at the entrance and throughout the grounds. Guests can also support the EmilyAnn by purchasing an array of fun light-up toys and yummy concessions. All proceeds from donation stations, concessions, stores, and special events benefit the EmilyAnn.

Close to the entrance there will be a volunteer to help direct you to the handicap parking or allow you to drop off passengers.
