There is a small entry fee of $5 per person ($7 after November 9th). Children under three are free. On-line registration open until 4:00 on November 23rd. Please register at the event after this time.

Tour de Lights has expanded to two nights!

Make wishes come true and start a new family tradition by going to the Make-A-Wish Foundation’s largest fundraiser of the year, Jolly Holiday  Lights.
