Holiday Light Fantasia is a much loved Greater Hartford tradition and this season's destination. The 2-mile show transforms Goodwin Park into a drive-through wonderland of holiday spirit with a beautiful collection of over 1 million lights.

Whimsical holiday scenes, familiar characters and local tributes shine bright in larger-than-life lighted scenes and 200 individual displays. Lighted animations celebrate not only Christmas, but Hanukkah, New Year's and Three Kings Day. ​The Hartford Holiday tradition welcomed over 90,000 visitors last year. 

Hours: 5-9 Sunday through Thursday, 5-10 Friday and Saturday.

Santa will meet visitors from 5-8 Fridays and Saturdays at no extra charge.
