This month’s MassFinds ‘Find of the Month’ is truly one for everyone!

In its 18th season, Bright Nights at Forest Park in Springfield, MA is the Northeast’s premier holiday lighting experience with nearly three miles of lighting displays that span from the traditional “North Pole Village” to the childhood-reminiscent, Dr. Seuss-inspired “Seuss Land” — creating the ultimate holiday lighting display for all ages.

For an inside look:

In part with the 450 ornamental displays and roughly 650,000 illuminated lights, visitors can visit with Santa, embark on wagon and carriage rides, or enjoy Dinner with Dickens at The Carriage House.

Lit nightly from December 5 through January 1, visitors are invited to drive through Sunday-Thursday from 5 PM – 9 PM, and on Fridays, Saturdays, and holidays from 5 PM – 6 PM.

Rates are based on a per-vehicle basis; cars, mini-vans, trucks, and motor homes run $18 (Monday–Thursday), and $21 (Friday–Sunday, and holidays).

If you’re looking to drive through with a large group, mini busses with seating capacity of 17-31 are charged $70, and busses with a seating capacity of 31+ are charged $150.

To discover all the Bright Nights fun, and for a behind the scenes look at ‘The Making of the Lights’ head to www.brightnights.org. You can also find Bright Nights on Facebook.
