Every year at Christmas time they convert part of the park into a drive through Christmas light show. I feel like this has got to be one of Nashville’s best kept Christmas secrets. I must have driven past this place a hundred times and never knew about it.
It’s not a large show, but what sets it apart is that all the lights flash on and off and change color to music. (Think Trans-Siberian-Orchestra). There are also tunnels of lights that you can drive through. At the end, there is a large tent set up with a few carnival type rides, jumpers, and snacks, but you have to pay extra for those.
Overall, it was a fun experience, and I’m glad we did it at least once. My only complaint is that it seems a little overpriced. You pay by the car, so if you are alone it is really expensive for what you get. If you carpool with friends or another family, then it’s not bad. For the price, I really feel the rides in the tent at the end, should have been included.
I would also say that I did enjoy this show more than the one you can drive through at the Ag center; even though this one is smaller.
