2020 Spring Lake Park Holiday Lights Drive Through Dec. 31
December 2, 2020 | View PDF
The Spring Lake Park Holiday Lights Drive is from 5:30-9:30 p.m., $5 per car and will continue through Dec. 31.
The Holiday Lights Drive is still happening despite the current pandemic restrictions. The park will be filled with lighted displays for a wonderful interactive drive through the holiday lights. The activities our lights drive is known for will be handled differently this year, but the lights will be brighter than ever and will bring holiday cheer as it has been doing for the past 18 years.
Gate passes will be available again this year! A book of 10 can be purchased for $40 ($10 savings per book) and give them out to friends, co-workers, in Christmas cards and to the people who help you out all year long like your delivery person, mailman, hair stylist and others. Contact the CVB for details at 701-774-9041 or stop out at the Visitors Center at 212 Airport Road to purchase your book of passes!
