Nature in Lights out at Belton Lake Outdoor Recreation area is now open.  Every night through January 5,  from 5:30 – 11 pm, you can drive through a spectacular Display of Christmas Lights.

Nature in Lights is open to everybody, no DOD sticker of Visitors Pass is needed.   You do have to pay to get in.

Prices vary depending on the size of your vehicle, but regular cars, trucks,  and vans are only 5 dollars per car load.  Bigger vehicles cost more.

The best time to go, to avoid the crowds, is now.  You don’t have to wait in a long line to get in and the weather is usually warm so you can see all the displays with the windows rolled down.  Put the kids in their jammies and head on out.

While supplies last you will get a FREE Sixth Annual Nature In Lights Christmas Ornament, given away Monday through Wednesday evenings.  One ornament per vehicle.

Stop by Santa’s village for hot chocolate, homemade cookies  and a visit with O Bearded One.

You can also put the family on the tram at Santa’s Depot for a trip to a special Trail of Lights the car traffic can’t see.

New this year, horseback riding and a bike night, you can get all the details on Nature in Lights right here.

It’s a great place to take holiday visitors.  There is so much to do, you may have to make a couple of trips this year.
