The Festival of Lights at Tanglewood Park is now open from 6 to 11 p.m. through Sunday, Jan. 1. Now in its 25th year, the festival features new displays and draws more than a quarter of a million visitors each year.

Guests are encouraged to attend the festival Monday-Thursday evenings early in the season. Friday-Sunday evenings and the days just before Christmas are busy and extremely long wait times should be expected.

Lowes Foods will be selling roasting sticks and S’mores kits each night until 10 in the Gift Village outside the Gift Shop, where guests can shop for holiday crafts, gifts and concessions from more than 50 local vendors.

Santa and Mrs. Claus will be on hand for photos through Dec. 23 on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesday, Thursdays and Sundays from 6 to 9:30 p.m. and on Fridays and Saturdays from 6 p.m. until closing. Photos will be available on CD.

Tanglewood Farms is also taking reservations for tractor-pulled hayrides and horse-drawn carriage rides. Reservations are required and can be made by calling 336-766-9540. Admission to the festival is $15 per family (cars, trucks and vans), $35 commercial (group vans, limos and mini-buses), and $100 for motorcoaches and buses.

For more information, go to or call 336-703-6481.
