During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
1. TARC's Winter Wonderland (Topeka)
What could be better than driving through a beautiful 2.5-mile long light display while supporting local community members with intellectual and developmental disabilities? (A suggested entrance donation of $10 benefits TARC.)
2. Christmas City of the High Plains (WaKeeney)
With four entire blocks decked out in twinkling lights, fresh greenery, and decorations, it's no wonder WaKeeney earned itself the nickname "Christmas City of the High Plains"!
3. Season of Lights (Wamego)
Trust me; there is nothing quite as beautiful as thousands of twinkling lights reflecting off the clear waters of city park pond.
4. The Arc’s Lights (Wichita)
Formerly known as The Arc’s Lights on St Paul, this festive display not only lights up the night sky, but the lives of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities who rely on The Arc of Sedgwick County.
5. Polar Express (Ellis)
All aboard the Polar Express, with non-stop service to the North Pole via a beautifully lighted route!
6. Festival of Lights at Blue Earth Plaza (Manhattan)
Santa loves the 50-foot tall tree and syncronized light display, and you will too!
7. A Legendary Light Show (Kansas City)
After you finish your holiday shopping, stop by the Civic Courtyard Fountain, where animated lights and concert-quality music come together for an experience unlike any other.
8. Illuminations (Wichita)
If you thought the Wichita Botanic Gardens were spectacular before, wait until you see them decked out in over 1 million dazzling lights!
9. The Ultimate Holiday Tree (Overland Park)
If you're looking to start a new holiday tradition with the family, look no further than the Deanna Rose Children's Farmstead's Ultimate Holiday Tree, which includes not only a gorgeous tree, but 3D spheres, stars, music, and much more!
10. Drive-thru Christmas Light Show (Salina)
I am finding conflicting reports as to whether or not the Yesteryear Museum is holding this beloved event, but I sure hope they are -- are you seeing these fun lights?!
Stay tuned for our list of Christmas home displays!
