The Nashoba Festival of lights in my opinion is a waste of time and money. The website pictures made it look so promising, but when we got there it was another story. The entrance fee $18 per person, for a 10 minute ride on a tractor with a guide who talked more about drunken elves and things irrelevant to Christmas. Rides are included with the entrance fee but honestly the rides were not great, and more for very young children, so older children focus more on the games which cost even more money.
We spent a total of 40 minutes at the place with our 7 yr old daughter, after trudging through mud and puddles in the parking lot to get to the front entrance. Carnival rides and games and a petting zoo do not seem to be a Christmas festivity at all and really added nothing to the event. In addition, the carnival games were outrageously priced but how do you say no to a child after you paid $18 to go to a festival and you’re done in 10 minutes and ready to leave? $10 to play a game and win a stuffed animal that is no more than 6 inches tall. So needless to say, we spent 40 minutes at the Festival of lights and $80 ($60 to get in the place and $20 on games) and went home feeling cheated, ripped off and so not in the Christmas spirit. I definitely do not recommend the Festival of lights especially if you have more than one child, you will drop a fortune and walk away wondering what you just spent all that money on.
