Festival of the Lights

Festival Of Lights Driving Tour is Your Safe Option for Holiday Fun


This holiday season, treat your family to a treasured tradition of Ohio Valley, the Oglebay Park Festival of Lights Driving Tour.   The six miles of festive lights are sure to dazzle the entire family and offers a COVID-safe experience from end-to-end for the visitor.


Stretching across 300 acres and with over 1-million LED lights, it is lauded by travel magazines and tour companies as one of the best holiday lights displays in the United States.


This year’s display is sure to not disappoint with over 90-lighted attractions.  The tour includes lighted tunnels, nutcrackers, princesses, dinosaurs, and your favorite winter and holiday scenes—something for every family member.


New this year is the Green Monster Display. He’s a mean fellow, with his skin all green and his teeth all yellow.  You better not miss him.


This year also rings in the inaugural Sounds of the Season. This multi-sensory experience will encourage you to roll down your window for the growls of dinosaurs, the blasts of canons, and the playful sounds of the circus.


The Festival of Lights was launched in 1985 to bring Holiday cheer to visitors and residents alike. A $25 donation per vehicle is suggested to ensure that the Festival continues to shine brightly for years to come.


In return, each vehicle will receive a 2020 vehicle pass, which is suitable for the entire holiday season. Each vehicle will also receive the NEW Oglebay Rewards Book containing more than $500 in money-saving coupons redeemable Nov. 2020 – Dec. 2021.
