4:30pm to 10:00pm PT

Hikari means "shine" in Japanese, and this holiday season Tanaka Farms shines with over a mile of twinkling lights. The 30-acre farm dazzles with farm-themed lighting on trees, tractors, and sugarcane. Enjoy live music, food, photo ops, arts & crafts, barnyard animals, photos with Santa, and holiday lights!

Guests take a cozy Wagon Ride around the festively lit farm to the “Land of a Thousand Lanterns,”  where they can wander through the light displays, with photo opportunities throughout.

After the wagon ride, the fun moves to the Festival Grounds for visits with the barnyard animals, food from the Tanaka Grill, photo ops, games, arts & crafts, and Santa photos  (All activities are priced individually.)

There is live music on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights.

Parking passes are required ($10 per vehicle).
