On Friday, December 6, 2013, several employees, their family members, and the surrounding community experienced the 8th opening of the “Listen to the Lights” celebration, hosted by Eric Lansford. Guests enjoyed sitting around the fire, sipping hot chocolate and apple cider, as they kicked off the holiday season.
The annual Christmas display illuminates the grounds with over 31,000 lights and a 17 foot high Christmas tree! The lights are coordinated with Christmas music providing a story-like atmosphere. Even in the warmth of Southern California, guests experience a “white” Christmas courtesy of Eric’s snow machine.
The “Listen to the Lights” celebration is open nightly from 5:00 to 11:00 pm through the end of the year. When driving by the display, guests can tune their radios to 89.5 FM and experience the music and the lights in the comfort of their cars.
