The Winter Walk In Iowa That Will Positively Enchant You
For those of us who love the crisp clear air during the holiday season, a winter walk offers a welcome opportunity to relax and enjoy Iowa’s changing weather.
Adding 500,000 Christmas lights to that walk just makes it epic.
We originally published this article last year, but we’ve updated it with all the latest details for 2018!
The annual Symphony of Lights, held in beautiful Eagle Point Park in Clinton is open each year Thanksgiving through December 30th between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m..
Gather your friends and family and drive through this beautiful light show with over 40 lighted displays. Admission is just $8 per car for the first 10 people in the vehicle, and $2 per person for each additional passenger.
The Symphony of Lights features over 500,000 individual lights.
The display is the work of the Clinton Jaycee Foundation. Proceeds go toward improvements and upgrades to Eagle Point Park, to enhance and continue the Symphony of Lights traditions, and to fund programs of the Clinton Jaycee Foundation.
People bring friends and neighbors to see this amazing light show.
There are castles, streams, and a giant gingerbread lodge.
The 1.1 mile loop of the park is filled with Christmas spirit.
Volunteers will be on-hand to assist visitors. As many as 400 volunteers offer their time and talents to this event every year.
Santa makes appearances on Sunday, December 9th and again on Sunday December 16th from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.. Make sure to stop by and say hello!
