Get ready to jingle all the way because a winter wonderland is about to unfold at the annual Pathway of Lights. Mark your calendars as the Green Lake circuit transforms into a mesmerizing spectacle adorned with thousands of sparkling candles.

The magical journey takes place for one day only on Saturday, December 9th from 4:30 PM until 7:30 PM.

As you amble along the glittering paths and docks, you can listen to live seasonal music and sip on complimentary refreshments. If you keep your eyes to the sky, you’ll be able to see the beloved Hot Air Balloon Glow making an appearance from 4:30 PM to 5:30 PM weather permitting.
