Across town at Iroquois Park, crews are setting up for the very first Winter Woods Spectacular starting Nov. 30.
The event has been in the planning stages for more than a decade. It’s a half-mile driving tour of 150 eight-foot tall stained glass windows lit up in the park.
“Millions of lights, lights in the trees and angels hanging down from the trees,” Louisville Parks Foundation CEO Brooke Pardue said.
Millions of holiday lights have taken over a half-mile trail inside Iroquois Park for the first ever Winter Woods Spectacular.
The event displays 150 stained glass windows, 500 fresh cut Christmas trees, a snow machine, about a dozen building fronts, and hundreds more figurines. Builders started creating pieces in the spring.
The driving trail is open to the public just off the Jack-o-lantern Spectacular trail. The event runs through December 31st. You must get tickets to attend. You can find that information here.
All of the money raised goes to the Louisville Parks Foundation.
Tickets start at $25 per car, and a portion of the ticket sales go to the Louisville Parks Foundation.
“The same production company that brings us Jack-o-lantern Spectacular is going to transform these beautiful woods around us,” Pardue said.
The Winter Woods Spectacular runs through Dec. 31.
