Wilstem Winter Fest will be a one to one-and-a-half-mile long drive thru light display.  Wilstem will be creating a unique experience for French Lick.  Enter the 200-foot drive thru tunnel, which can be seen from the highway will entice passing traffic.  Customers will be welcomed by Santa, Elves, and Mrs. Claus.  The beautiful covered bridge will be adorned with lights followed by trees wrapped in lights and animated horses.  Guests will then pass through the Victorian Holiday scene, Multicolored spheres hanging from the trees, and then through the animal families consisting of buffalo, grizzly bear, giraffes, and elephants.  Santa has left the North Pole and went on an animal safari.  Next, venture thru one of the most popular and children friendly displays, the Candy Factory.  As you near the base of the hill, all buildings and barns around Basecamp will be adorned in lights.  Two elves will be directing guests to continue towards the big red barn to Santa’s Village. Guests will see Santa playing sports with the reindeer, classic reindeer scenes, poinsettia farm, woodland animals, and a 100 foot drive thru tunnel.

Winter Fest will be available November 13th-January 3rd 6 pm to 9 pm.  Ticket pricing will vary between $30 per car.
