November 11, 2019
What is the largest Christmas lights display in Ohio?

Many displays will share how many lights they use and often times it’s upwards of a million (or more!). Some of the displays mentioned above, such as the Festival of Lights at the Cincinnati Zoo, definitely rank as one of the largest. For the largest drive-thru Christmas Lights in Ohio, the award may go to Butch Bando’s Fantasy of Lights, which rounds out our list above. Read more about this 3-mile long adventure in this feature article.
