Tune into 88.1 FM for a mix of contemporary and classic holiday music as you drive along the trail loop. The show is about 40 minutes long, according to organizers, and begins at 5 PM without music, for about an hour and 6 PM to 10 PM with sound.

There’s another static light show from 10 PM to 11 PM as well, for those that prefer a zero sound light show.

And the best thing about it is that it is absolutely free to enjoy.

Whether it’s a day trip experience or part of your weekend getaway, this is one holiday event you don’t want to miss.
