It’s time to glow! Entering its 28th season, Callaway Gardens, located in Pine Mountain, Georgia, is pleased to present the South’s favorite holiday traditions, Fantasy In Lights, one of National Geographic’s Top 10 Light Displays in the world.
Everyone is invited to come make merry in the Fantasy In Lights Christmas Village, meet holiday characters up close, and ride through the dazzling illuminated forest. To create even more memories, guests may extend the celebration with an overnight stay at the resort, enjoy mouthwatering meals or cozy cups of cocoa in beautiful accommodations, and explore 2,500 acres of stunning natural landscape inside Callaway Gardens.
The show runs nightly through January 4, 2020.
A Unique Holiday Experience
Imagine traveling through a whimsical Christmas storybook, by Jolly Trolley or personal vehicle, as more than 8 million lights sparkle against the Winter night’s sky to tell the story amid wonderfully themed music. It’s possible this holiday season with a visit to Fantasy In Lights! In addition to the classic scenes, such as Snowflake Valley and Magical Christmas Garden, this year guests will be especially delighted to enjoy “Santa’s North Pole Children’s Play Village,” the newest addition to Fantasy In Lights. This pint-sized playland is perfect for snowball fights and photographs with the elves inside Christmas Village.
Before or after seeing the show, the Christmas Village, a 22,000-square-foot heated indoor area, is the place to visit with Santa and other holiday characters, relax, and shop. With a fresh new layout and design, it will be easy to find the perfect gift for anyone on the list. Specialty and unique gift areas include butterflies, birds, vintage toys, snowmen, collegiate, stained glass, angels, nutcrackers, Nativity, items for the home and even things for your favorite four-legged family member. Of course, guests also will have the opportunity to shop for specialty food items from the Callaway Gardens Country Store®.
