Arkansas Trail of Holiday Lights Is Underway

November 27, 2013 Destination North America No Comments Email Email

Now that the gorgeous fall foliage we had this year is just about gone, we have a different kind of color season taking its place. The Arkansas Trail of Holiday Lights is now available.

Although a few early events have already occurred, the bulk of the festivities began in earnest next week, mostly on Nov. 29, the day after Thanksgiving.

More than 60 communities around the state are taking part in the Trail this year, offering everything from caroling, tree and town lightings, to open houses, parades and visits from Santa and Mrs. Claus.  You’ll find information on all of these on the Arkansas Trail of Holiday Lights website.  Read about the state’s largest Christmas tree, a 54-foot-behemoth making its debut this year inConway.  Check out the locations where you can go ice skating — Bentonville, Ozark, and Helena-West Helena.  Horse-drawn carriages await to transport you in Fayetteville and Historic Washington State Park, while Blytheville offers hay rides — and inFort Smith, you can board a train to tour a winter wonderland. Wanting to experience a White Christmas? Then head on over toWild Winter Country at Wild River Country in North Little Rock to experience snow tubing, snowman building, snowball throwing and more, featuring REAL snow.

You can download the brochure, make-your-own holiday e-card using Arkansas scenes, and view seasonal photos submitted by our visitors in 2012. Be sure and submit your photographs after visiting any of the sparkly locales.

Printed brochures are available for pick-up at any participating Bank of America, Shell, Subway, and Best Western or any of the14 Arkansas Welcome Centers.

Join in the chorus as we lift our merry voices in honor of the season.
